CONTENT: Normal Body Temperature, Gender, and Heart Rate
TYPE: Random sample
SIZE: 130 observations, 3 variables
This article takes data from a paper in the _Journal of the American Medical Association_ that examined whether the true mean body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. These data are derived from a dataset presented in Mackowiak, P. A., Wasserman, S. S., and Levine, M. M. (1992), "A Critical Appraisal of 98.6 Degrees F, the Upper Limit of the Normal Body Temperature, and Other Legacies of Carl Reinhold August Wunderlich," _Journal of the American Medical Association_, 268, 1578-1580.
Temp = Body temperature (degrees Fahrenheit)
Sex = Gender (1 = male, 2 = female)
Beats = Heart rate (beats per minute)
Additional information about these data can be found in the "Datasets and Stories" article "What's Normal? -- Temperature, Gender, and Heart Rate" in the _Journal of Statistics Education_ (Shoemaker 1996).
