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.

Comparing two drugs
The basic practice of statistics: instructor's edition. David S. Moore - William Notz - Michael A. Fligner - R. Scott Linder - W.H. Freeman and Co. – 2013 (p. 462) 18.50 Comparing two drugs. Makers of generic drugs must show that they do not differ significantly from the “reference” drugs that they imitate. One aspect in which drugs might differ is their extent of absorption in the blood. Table 18.6 gives data taken from 20 healthy nonsmoking male subjects for one pair of drugs. This is a matched pairs design. Numbers 1 to 20 were assigned at random to the subjects. Subjects 1 to 10 received the generic drug first, followed by the reference drug. Subjects 11 to 20 received the reference drug first, followed by the generic drug. In all cases, a washout period separated the two drugs so that the first had disappeared from the blood before the subject took the second. By randomizing the order, we eliminate the order in which the drugs were administered from being confounded with the difference in the absorption in the blood. Do the drugs differ significantly in the amount absorbed in the blood? Table 18.6 Absorption extent for two versions of a drug

Violent Crimes by State State Rankings -- Statistical Abstract of the United States VIOLENT CRIMES 1 PER 100,000 POPULATION -- 2006 [When states share the same rank, the next lower rank is omitted. Because of rounded data, states may have identical values shown, but different ranks. Cautionary note] Cautionary note about rankings The ranks in some tables are based on estimates derived from a sample(s). Because of sampling and nonsampling errors associated with the estimates, the ranking of the estimates does not necessarily reflect the correct ranking of the unknown true values. Thus, caution should be used when making inferences or statements about the states' true values based on a ranking of the estimates. As an example, the estimated total (average, percent, ratio, etc.) for State A may be larger than the estimates for all other states. This does not necessarily mean that the true total (average, percent, ratio, etc.) for State A is larger than those for all other states. Such an inference typically depends on --among other factors-- the size of the difference(s) between the estimates in question, and the size of their associated standard errors. In other tables, the ranks are based on a complete enumeration of the target population, or on complete administrative reporting from the population. In such cases, sampling is not used, and there is no sampling error component in the estimates. Still, care should still be taken when making inferences or statements based on the rankings. The table values may still exhibit nonsampling error originating from such sources as coverage problems (missing units or duplicates), nonresponse, misreporting, and others.
