NY Times: The Most Economically Diverse Top Colleges
To measure top colleges efforts on economic diversity, The Upshot calculated a College Access Index, based on the percentage of freshmen in recent years who came from low-income families (measured by the share receiving a Pell grant) and on the net price of attendance for low- and middle-income families. The recent Pell (2012 - 2014) number for each college is the average percentage of the freshman class that received a Pell grant in 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14; not all colleges had 2013 data yet. The earlier Pell (2008) value is for the fall of 2007. Average net price is the average total cost of attendance in 2012-13, including tuition, fees, room and board, after taking into account federal, state and institutional financial aid, for students who come from households earning between $30,000 and $48,000 a year and qualifying for federal aid. Endowment per student is for the year 2011-12 and includes graduate students. The College Access Index is a combination of net price and the Pell average for 2011, 2012 and 2013, using a statistical technique known as a z-score. A college with an average score on the two measures in combination will receive a zero.

Home Runs 2016
Data on all home runs hit during the 2016 baseball season. If the home run flew uninterrupted all the way back to field level, the actual distance the ball traveled from home plate, in feet. If the ball's flight was interrupted before returning all the way down to field level (as is usually the case), the estimated distance the ball would have traveled if its flight had continued uninterrupted all the way down to field level. Horiz. Angle - the initial direction of the ball as it left the bat in degrees, where 45 degrees is straight down the right field line, 90 degrees is straight over second base and 135 degrees is straight down the left field line. Apex - the highest point reached by the ball in flight above field level, in feet. Three types of home runs: "Just Enough" or "JE", which means the ball cleared the fence by less than 10 vertical feet, OR that it landed less than one fence height past the fence. These are the ones that barely made it over the fence... - "No Doubt", or "ND", which means the ball cleared the fence by at least 20 vertical feet AND landed at least 50 feet past the fence. These are the really deep blasts... - "Plenty", or "PL", which is everything else. Source: http://www.hittrackeronline.com/index.php

Breast Cancer
Datafile Name: Breast Cancer Datafile Subjects: Health , Medical Story Names: Breast cancer Reference: A.J. Lea. (1965). New Observations on Distribution of Neoplasms of Female Breast in Certain Countries. British Medical Journal, 1, 488-490. Text Citation: Velleman, P. F. and Hoaglin, D. C. (1981). Applications, Basics, and Computing of Exploratory Data Analysis. Belmont. CA: Wadsworth, Inc., pp. 127-134. Authorization: free use Description: Data contains the mean annual temperature (in degrees F) and Mortality Index for neoplasms of the female breast. Data were taken from certain regions of Great Britain, Norway, and Sweden. Number of cases: 16 Variable Names: Mortality: Mortality index for neoplasms of the female breast Temperature: Mean annual temperature (in degrees F) In the early 1960s, data were collected from official statistics registers of Great Britain, Norway and Sweden on breast cancer mortality. Death rates for neoplasms of the breast were calculated for various age groups and for certain areas at the same latitude. Age-specific death rates were then calculated for each area and converted to a mortality index using 100 as the age-specific rate for all of England and Wales. The mean annual temperatures at various latitudes under study were obtained from the British Meteorological Office.
