Dropout prevention/intervention program effects

Description

A dataset containing estimated effect sizes, variances, and covariates from a meta-analysis of dropout prevention/intervention program effects, conducted by Wilson et al. (2011). Missing observations were imputed.

Usage

dropoutPrevention

Format

A data frame with 385 rows and 18 variables:

LOR1

log-odds ratio measuring the intervention effect

varLOR

estimated sampling variance of the log-odds ratio

studyID

unique identifier for each study

studySample

unique identifier for each sample within a study

study_design

study design (randomized, matched, or non-randomized and unmatched)

outcome

outcome measure for the intervention effect is estimated (school dropout, school enrollment, graduation, graduation or GED receipt)

evaluator_independence

degree of evaluator independence (independent, indirect but influential, involved in planning but not delivery, involved in delivery)

implementation_quality

level of implementation quality (clear problems, possible problems, no apparent problems)

program_site

Program delivery site (community, mixed, school classroom, school but outside of classroom)

attrition

Overall attrition (proportion)

group_equivalence

pretest group-equivalence log-odds ratio

adjusted

adjusted or unadjusted data used to calculate intervention effect

male_pct

proportion of the sample that is male

white_pct

proportion of the sample that is white

average_age

average age of the sample

duration

program duration (in weeks)
