Singfat Chu diamond ring data
NAME: Diamond Ring Pricing Using Linear Regression TYPE: Random sample SIZE: 48 observations, 2 variables DESCRIPTIVE ABSTRACT: This dataset contains the prices of ladies' diamond rings and the carat size of their diamond stones. The rings are made with gold of 20 carats purity and are each mounted with a single diamond stone. SOURCE: The source of the data is a full page advertisement placed in the _Straits Times_ newspaper issue of February 29, 1992, by a Singapore-based retailer of diamond jewelry. VARIABLE DESCRIPTIONS: Columns 6 - 8 Size of diamond in carats (1 carat = .2 gram) 16 - 19 Price of ring in Singapore dollars Values are aligned and delimited by blanks. There are no missing values. STORY BEHIND THE DATA: Data presented in a newspaper advertisement suggest the use of simple linear regression to relate the prices of diamond rings to the weights of their diamond stones. The intercept of the resulting regression line is negative and significantly different from zero. This finding raises questions about an assumed pricing mechanism and motivates consideration of remedial actions. PEDAGOGICAL NOTES: This dataset can be used to illustrate model-building in linear regression. A possibly counter-intuitive negative intercept may be avoided by using a multiplicative or exponential regression model. These regression models are intrinsically linear, and they are estimated using standard linear regression technology after a suitable transformation of the data. Additional information about these data can be found in the "Datasets and Stories" article "Diamond Ring Pricing Using Linear Regression" in the _Journal of Statistics Education_ (Chu 1996).

Egg story (DASL)
A single can of dried eggs was stirred well. Samples were drawn and a pair of samples (claimed to be of two "types"), was sent to each of six commercial laboratories to be analyzed for fat content. Each laboratory assigned two technicians, who each analyzed both "types". Since the data were all drawn from a single well-mixed can, the null hypothesis for ANOVA that the mean fat content of each sample is equal is true. The experiment is thus really a study of the laboratories. The dependent variable is the fat contents measured by each technician for each sample. The factors in the design are laboratory, technician, and "type". The experiment is a hierarchical design. In each of the six laboratories, two technicians examined the fat content of the eggs, but the technicians in each lab were different, so "Technicians" are nested within "Lab". Each sample was analyzed by only one technician, so "Sample" is nested within "Technician" (and Lab). Hierarchical designs of this sort are often analyzed using Sequential Sums of Squares. The ANOVA is shows significant differences, but a dotplot of the residuals by laboratory reveals that the significant F-test for laboratory is due almost entirely to laboratory 1 where there was great variability, and where, in particular technician 2, obtained poor results.
