The data consist of 200 subjects selected at random from a larger study done in 1988 on the survival of patients following admission to an adult intensive care unit (ICU). Data were collected at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA. The purpose of the study was to develop a model to predict the probability of survival until hospital discharge and to study the risk factors associated with ICU mortality. Results have been published in a number of articles, one of which is by S. Lemeshow, D. Teres, J.S. Avrunin, and H. Pastides, “Predicting the Outcome of Intensive Care Unit Patients”, Journal of American Statistical Association, 83, 348-356 (1988).
