R Dataset / Package boot / wool
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the wool data set which pertains to Australian Relative Wool Prices. The wool data set is found in the boot R package. Try to load the wool data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("wool"). This may load the data into a variable called wool. If R says the wool data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("boot") and then attempt to reload the data with library("boot") followed by data("wool"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing wool at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the wool R data set. The size of this file is about 3,262 bytes.
Australian Relative Wool Prices
Each week that the market is open the Australian Wool Corporation set a floor price which determines their policy on intervention and is therefore a reflection of the overall price of wool for the week in question. Actual prices paid can vary considerably about the floor price. The series here is the log of the ratio between the price for fine grade wool and the floor price, each market week between July 1976 and Jun 1984.
