### Description

This dataset is generated by nonnormal data with function `rnonnorm`

. It contains the descriptive data in individual studies in the meta-analysis.

### Usage

```
beta_mdat
```

### Format

A `data.frame`

with 40 studies:

- study
No of studies

- n1
sample size of group 1 with equal sample size for the two studies. Generated with uniform distribution.

- m1
mean of group 1. Population mean is equal to 1. The data of group 1 is generated with skewness = 4 and kurtosis = 2.

- sd1
standard deviation of group 1. Population sd of group 1 is equal to 1.

- lo1
minimum of the generated sample for group 1.

- hi1
maximum of the generated sample for group 1.

- n2
sample size of study 2; n1 = n2 for each study

- m2
mean of group 2. Population mean is equal to 1.5. The data of group 2 is generated with skewness = -4 and kurtosis = 2.

- sd2
standard deviation of group 2. Population sd of group 2 is equal to 1.

- lo2
minimum of the generated sample for group 2.

- hi2
maximum of the generated sample for group 2.

- skew1
sample skewness for group 1.

- skew2
