Minor Head Injury (Simulated) Data
head.injury data frame has 3121 rows and 11 columns.
The data were simulated according to a simple logistic
regression model to match roughly the clinical characteristics
of a sample of individuals who suffered minor head injuries.
This data frame contains the following columns:
age factor (0 = under 65, 1 = over 65).
amnesia before impact (less than 30 minutes = 0,
than 30 minutes =1).
(0 = no fracture, 1 = fracture).
Glasgow Coma Scale decrease (0 = no
deterioration, 1 = deterioration).
initial Glasgow Coma Scale (0 = not ‘13’, 1 = ‘13’).
Glasgow Coma Scale after 2 hours
(0 = not ‘15’, 1 = '15').
assessed by clinician as high risk for neurological
intervention (0 = not high risk, 1 = high risk).
(0 = conscious, 1 = loss of
(0 = no fracture, 1 = fracture)
(0 = no vomiting, 1 = vomiting)
any acute brain finding
