R Dataset / Package Stat2Data / WeightLossIncentive
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the WeightLossIncentive data set which pertains to WeightLossIncentive. The WeightLossIncentive data set is found in the Stat2Data R package. Try to load the WeightLossIncentive data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("WeightLossIncentive"). This may load the data into a variable called WeightLossIncentive. If R says the WeightLossIncentive data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Stat2Data") and then attempt to reload the data with library("Stat2Data") followed by data("WeightLossIncentive"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing WeightLossIncentive at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the WeightLossIncentive R data set. The size of this file is about 721 bytes.
An experiment to see if financial incentives improve weight loss
A dataset with 38 observations on the following 3 variables.
whether financial incentives would help people lose weight more successfully. Some participants in
the study were randomly assigned to a treatment group that was offered financial incentives for
achieving weight loss goals, while others were assigned to a control group that did not use financial
incentives. All participants were monitored over a four month period and the net weight change
(Before - After in pounds) at the end of this period was recorded for each individual. Then the
individuals were left alone for three months with a followup weight check at the seven-month mark
to see whether weight losses persisted after the original four months of treatment.
