The cottonworkers data set is found in the DAAG R package. You can load the cottonworkers data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("cottonworkers"). This will load the data into a variable called cottonworkers. If R says the cottonworkers 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. 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 cottonworkers R data set. The size of this file is about 360 bytes.

Occupation and wage profiles of British cotton workers

Description

Numbers are given in different categories of worker, in each of two investigations. The first source of information is the Board of Trade Census that was conducted on 1886. The second is a relatively informal survey conducted by US Bureau of Labor representatives in 1889, for use in official reports.

A data frame with 14 observations on the following 3 variables.

Numbers of workers in each of 14 different categories, according to the Board of Trade wage census that was conducted in 1886

Numbers of workers in each of 14 different categories, according to data collected in 1889 by the US Bureau of Labor, for use in a report to the US Congress and House of Representatives

Details

The data in survey1889 were collected in a relatively informal manner, by approaching individuals on the street. Biases might therefore be expected.
