Times World University Rankings (2011-2016)
This data comes from the annual Times magazine rankings of universities across the world. The webpage for the Times 2016 rankings is listed above in the source.
The formula for the 2016 rankings is as follows:
30% for Teaching Rating
7.5% for International Outlook Rating
30% for Research Rating
30% for Citations Rating
2.5% for Industry Income Rating.
The “Total Score” from 2016 can be recreated using this formula.

ColumnDescription
World_RankUniversity rank for a given year
University_NameThe name of the university
CountryLocation of university
Teaching_Rating Rating from a 0-100 scale of the quality of teaching at the university. This rating is based on the institution’s reputation for teaching, it’s student/staff ratio, it’s PhD’s/ undergraduate degrees awarded ratio, and it’s institutional income/ academic staff ratio.
Inter_Outlook_Rating Rating from a 0-100 scale of the international makeup of a university. This rating is based the international student percentage, international staff percentage, and the percentage of research papers from the university that include at least one international author.
Research_Rating Rating from a 0-100 scale of quality of research at the university. This rating is based on the university’s reputation, it’s research income/ academic staff ratio, and it’s production of scholarly papers.
Citations_Rating Rating from a 0-100 scale of based on the normalized average of citations by other papers per paper from the university (how often the research from the university is cited by other papers).
Industry_Income_Rating Rating from a 0-100 scale grading how much companies are willing to invest in the universities research. The rating is calculated based on the research income from businesses per academic staff member.

Body Temperature
Data taken from the Journal of Statistics Education online data archive. That archive in turn got the data from an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. (Mackowiak, et al., "A Critical Appraisal of 98.6 Degrees F …", vol. 268, pp. 1578-80, 1992).
"Body Temp" is measured in degrees fahrenheit
"Heart rate" is the resting beats per minute

Change of Rate (Female Inactivity Rate Aged 25-54)The change in the inactivity rate calculated as the current year minus the previous year.
Annual Average Workforce Participation RateDefined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as "the percentage of the population [16 years and older] that is either employed or unemployed (that is, either working or actively seeking work). Note that 2015's Annual Average is calculated using the first 11 months."
Change of Rate (Annual Workforce Participation Rate)The change in the workforce participation rate calculated as the current year minus the previous year.

Baseball2013.xlsx
Stats from the major league baseball teams for 2013. The last column I added denotes AL for American League and NL for National League. One could possibly conduct a two-sample means test, for example, to find out whether the average runs for the two leagues are equal. Or there are of course lots of regressions one could run.

Low Birth Weight Study
SOURCE: Hosmer and Lemeshow (2000) Applied Logistic Regression: Second Edition Data were collected at Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, Massachusetts during 1986. DESCRIPTIVE ABSTRACT: The goal of this study was to identify risk factors associated with giving birth to a low birth weight baby (weighing less than 2500 grams). Data were collected on 189 women, 59 of which had low birth weight babies and 130 of which had normal birth weight babies. Four variables which were thought to be of importance were age, weight of the subject at her last menstrual period, race, and the number of physician visits during the first trimester of pregnancy. LIST OF VARIABLES: Columns Variable Abbreviation ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2-4 Identification Code ID 10 Low Birth Weight (0 = Birth Weight >= 2500g, LOW 1 = Birth Weight < 2500g) 17-18 Age of the Mother in Years AGE 23-25 Weight in Pounds at the Last Menstrual Period LWT 32 Race (1 = White, 2 = Black, 3 = Other) RACE 40 Smoking Status During Pregnancy (1 = Yes, 0 = No) SMOKE 48 History of Premature Labor (0 = None 1 = One, etc.) PTL 55 History of Hypertension (1 = Yes, 0 = No) HT 61 Presence of Uterine Irritability (1 = Yes, 0 = No) UI 67 Number of Physician Visits During the First Trimester FTV (0 = None, 1 = One, 2 = Two, etc.) 73-76 Birth Weight in Grams BWT ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- PEDAGOGICAL NOTES: These data have been used as an example of fitting a multiple logistic regression model. STORY BEHIND THE DATA: Low birth weight is an outcome that has been of concern to physicians for years. This is due to the fact that infant mortality rates and birth defect rates are very high for low birth weight babies. A woman's behavior during pregnancy (including diet, smoking habits, and receiving prenatal care) can greatly alter the chances of carrying the baby to term and, consequently, of delivering a baby of normal birth weight. The variables identified in the code sheet given in the table have been shown to be associated with low birth weight in the obstetrical literature. The goal of the current study was to ascertain if these variables were important in the population being served by the medical center where the data were collected. References: 1. Hosmer and Lemeshow, Applied Logistic Regression, Wiley, (1989).

Baseball data for correlation and regression
This table shows the total number of runs scored, at bats, hits, etc for each of the 30 MLB teams for the 2009-2011 seasons. //// Correlations and linear regression models can be calculated between the different numeric variables. A good exercise is to see which variables correlate most strongly with runs_scored. //// As emphasized in the movie Moneyball, some of the classic metrics such as batting_avg is not as good as the newer metrics like OBP (on base percentage), SLG (slugging percentage), or OPS (on base plus slugging). //// A guide to a few of the variables that may not be self explanatory. Runs_Scored: The total of all runs (points) the baseball team scored by the end of the season. Batting_avg: This is equal to the number of hits divided by at_bats OBP: On Base Percentage. Similar to batting average, except that it takes into account walks and hit-by-pitch. Some players who don't have high batting averages, manage to get walked quite frequently. SLG: Slugging - This weights hits to first base as 1 point, hits to second base as 2 points, third as 3, homeruns as 4, and divides the total by the number of at bats. OPS - On Base Plus Slugging - this is just OBP added to the SLG numbers.

Cigarette Consumption vs CHD Mortality
Now that cigarette smoking has been clearly tied to lung cancer, researchers are focusing on possible links to other diseases. The data below show annual rates of cigarette consumption and deaths from coronary heart disease for several nations. Some public health officials are urging that the US adopt a national goal of cutting cigarette consumption in half over the next decade. Examine these data and write a report. In your report you should: 1. Include appropriate graphs (e.g. scatterplot, residual plot) and statistics (e.g. mean and SD); 2. Describe the association between cigarette smoking and coronary heart disease; 3. Create a linear model; 4. Evaluate the strength and appropriateness of your model; 5. Interpret the slope and y-intercept of the line; 6. Use your model to estimate the potential benefits of reaching the national goal proposed for the US. That is, based on your linear model, if the US were to cut its cigarette consumption in half (from 3900 to 1950), what does the linear model predict would happen to the CHD rate. 7. You should use Statcrunch to generate nice looking graphs and output as needed. Be sure to size them appropriately. No need for a 8x10 scatterplot; Make your graphs about 3x3. You should scale them in Statcrunch first, then copy and paste into Word.
