STA114/MTH136 Statistics: Data Sets

Home Page Syllabus Computing Data ACES (STA114, MTH136)

Data sets: Some lecture examples will feature data from published research, books, or other sources; I'll try to make the data available here so you can try out the methods used in class or experiment with other methods. Also some homework problems will have data sets; I'll put those here too. Click on any item below and you will find either the raw data or a further page of explanation leading to the raw data. Use the File>Save As feature of your web browser to save the data to a file, which you can then enter into S-Plus using the read.table() or scan() functions. To see a sample S-Plus session illustrating this, click on Anscombe below.
