About This Example Code
The code simulates and analyzes data from a hypothetical Hybrid Experimental Design, a novel trial design that combines features from (Sequential Multiple Assignment Randomized Trials) SMARTs and (Micro-Randomized Trials) MRTs. This example code was developed in association with the manuscript “Hybrid Experimental Designs for Intervention Development: What, Why and How” by Nahum-Shani et al (2022).
What method does this code implement?
The code implements a weighted and replicated analysis of a particular kind of hybrid study involving SMART and MRT components together.
