J Pribe auto-mpg.xlsx
The data set covers 12 years of vehicles and contains 398 individual entries. The data describes popular consumer vehicle’s miles per gallon (MPG), the number of engine cylinders, total engine size (displacement), engine horsepower, the vehicle weight, a measure of acceleration (0-60 MPH time), the model year of the vehicle (1970-1982), a coded identifier for the place of origin, and the make and model of the vehicle. MPG, number of cylinders, engine size, horsepower, weight, acceleration time, and model year are all numerical values. The vehicle origin, full name, make, and model are categorical. This data was chosen to meet the assignment requirements, and because cars are cool. *Origin data code: 1=USA, 2=Europe, 3=Japan. The "car name" variable was broken into additional make and model variables to ease analysis, a change from the original data set.
