Wolf River Pollution
Jaffe, Parker and Wilson (1982) have investigated the concentration of several hydrophobic organic substances (such as hexachlorobenzene, chlordane, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, endrin) in the Wolf River in Tennessee. Measurements were taken downstream of an abandoned dump site that had previously been used by the pesticide industry to dispose of its waste products. It was expected that these hydrophic substances might have a nonhomogeneous vertical distribution in the river because of differences in density between these compounds and water and because of the adsorption of these compounds on sediments, which could lead to higher concentrations on the bottom. It is important to check this hypothesis because the standard procedure of sampling at six-tenths of the depth could miss the bulk of these pollutants if the distribution were not uniform. Grab samples were taken with a La Motte-Vandorn water sampler of 1 litre capacity at various depths of the river. This sampler consists of a horizontal plexiglas tube of 7 centimetres diameter and a plunger of each side which shuts the sampler when the sampler is at the desired depth. Ten surface, 10 mid-depth and 10 bottom samples were collected, all within a relatively short period. Until they were analysed the samples were stored in 1-quart mason jars at low temperature. In the analysis of the samples, a 250-millilitre water sample was taken from each mason jar and was extracted with 1 millilitre of either hexanes or petroleum ether. A sample of the extract was then injected into a gas chromatograph and the output was compared against standards of known concentrations. The test procedure was repeated two more times, injecting different samples of the extract in the gas chromatograph. The average aldrin and hexachlorobenzene (HCB) concentrations (in nanograms per liter) in these 30 samples are given in the data.

Speed of light
The table below gives Albert Michelson's measurements of the velocity of light in air, made from June 5 to July 2, 1879. The given values + 299,000 are Michelson's measurements in km/sec. The number of cases is n = 100, and the "true" value is 792.4. Michelson made his measurements using devices of his own design. The early experiments, corresponding to our dataset, were improvements on methods that had been used by Foucault. For his work in this area, Michelson was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1907, the first American Scientist to be so honored. The data and descriptive information are based on material from "Do robust estimators work with real data?" by Stephen M. Stigler, Annals of Statistics 5 (1977), 1055-1098.

Births in Philadelphia
Births in Philadelphia. These are data based on a 5% sample of all births occurring in Philadelphia in 1990. The sample has 1115 observations (after deleting 32 cases with incomplete information) on five variables): black = yes, no educ = Mother's years of education smoke = yes, no gestate = gestational age in week birthweight = birth weight in grams Reference: I. T. Elo, G. Rodruez and H. Lee (2001). Racial and Neighborhood Disparities in Birthweight in Philadelphia. Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Population Association of America, Washington, DC 2001.

Body Measurements
NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) 2009-2010 is a stratified multistage probability sample of the civilian non-institutionalized population of the U.S. Several demographic and body measurement variables were selected. Some data cleaning was performed including (1) Data for individuals aged 17 or less was removed to create an adult sample. (2) Data for individuals with missing data was also removed. Suitable for final project.
