R Dataset / Package DAAG / litters
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the litters data set which pertains to Mouse Litters. The litters data set is found in the DAAG R package. Try to load the litters data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("litters"). This may load the data into a variable called litters. If R says the litters 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("litters"). 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 litters 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 litters R data set. The size of this file is about 301 bytes.
Data on the body and brain weights of 20 mice, together with the size of the litter. Two mice were taken from each litter size.
This data frame contains the following columns:
Wainright P, Pelkman C and Wahlsten D 1989. The quantitative relationship between nutritional effects on preweaning growth and behavioral development in mice. Developmental Psychobiology 22: 183-193.
