On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the cities data set which pertains to Populations of Major Canadian Cities (1992-96). The cities data set is found in the DAAG R package. Try to load the cities data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("cities"). This may load the data into a variable called cities. If R says the cities data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("DAAG") and then attempt to reload the data with library("DAAG") followed by data("cities"). 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 cities 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 cities R data set. The size of this file is about 638 bytes.
Populations of Major Canadian Cities (1992-96)
Population estimates for several Canadian cities.
This data frame contains the following columns:

a factor with 5 levels (ATL=Atlantic, ON=Ontario,
QC=Quebec, PR=Prairies, WEST=Alberta and British Columbia) representing the location
of the cities
a numeric vector giving population in 1000's for 1992
a numeric vector giving population in 1000's for 1993
a numeric vector giving population in 1000's for 1994
a numeric vector giving population in 1000's for 1995
a numeric vector giving population in 1000's for 1996
cities$have <- factor((cities$REGION=="ON")|(cities$REGION=="WEST"))
plot(POP1996~POP1992, data=cities, col=as.integer(cities$have))
