This is a toy dataset containing simulated effect size data of a fictitious network meta-analysis examining the effect of psychotherapies. Effect size data is provided as the standardized mean difference (SMD) between the intervention and control group and its corresponding standard error for each study at post. The dataframe layout is optimized for out-of-the-box usage using the netmeta function.
