On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the crimtab data set which pertains to Student's 3000 Criminals Data. The crimtab data set is found in the datasets R package. You can load the crimtab data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("crimtab"). This will load the data into a variable called crimtab. If R says the crimtab data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("datasets") 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 crimtab R data set. The size of this file is about 2,143 bytes.


Student's 3000 Criminals Data

Description

Data of 3000 male criminals over 20 years old undergoing their sentences in the chief prisons of England and Wales.

Usage

crimtab

Format

A table object of integer counts, of dimension 42 * 22 with a total count, sum(crimtab) of 3000.

The 42 rownames ("9.4", "9.5", ...) correspond to midpoints of intervals of finger lengths whereas the 22 column names (colnames) ("142.24", "144.78", ...) correspond to (body) heights of 3000 criminals, see also below.

Details

Student is the pseudonym of William Sealy Gosset. In his 1908 paper he wrote (on page 13) at the beginning of section VI entitled Practical Test of the forgoing Equations:

“Before I had succeeded in solving my problem analytically, I had endeavoured to do so empirically. The material used was a correlation table containing the height and left middle finger measurements of 3000 criminals, from a paper by W. R. MacDonell (Biometrika, Vol. I., p. 219). The measurements were written out on 3000 pieces of cardboard, which were then very thoroughly shuffled and drawn at random. As each card was drawn its numbers were written down in a book, which thus contains the measurements of 3000 criminals in a random order. Finally, each consecutive set of 4 was taken as a sample—750 in all—and the mean, standard deviation, and correlation of each sample determined. The difference between the mean of each sample and the mean of the population was then divided by the standard deviation of the sample, giving us the z of Section III.”

The table is in fact page 216 and not page 219 in MacDonell(1902). In the MacDonell table, the middle finger lengths were given in mm and the heights in feet/inches intervals, they are both converted into cm here. The midpoints of intervals were used, e.g., where MacDonell has 4' 7''9/16 -- 8''9/16, we have 142.24 which is 2.54*56 = 2.54*(4' 8'').

MacDonell credited the source of data (page 178) as follows: The data on which the memoir is based were obtained, through the kindness of Dr Garson, from the Central Metric Office, New Scotland Yard... He pointed out on page 179 that : The forms were drawn at random from the mass on the office shelves; we are therefore dealing with a random sampling.

Examples

require(stats)
dim(crimtab)
utils::str(crimtab)
## for nicer printing:
local({cT <- crimtab
       colnames(cT) <- substring(colnames(cT), 2, 3)
       print(cT, zero.print = " ")
})## Repeat Student's experiment:# 1) Reconstitute 3000 raw data for heights in inches and rounded to
#    nearest integer as in Student's paper:(heIn <- round(as.numeric(colnames(crimtab)) / 2.54))
d.hei <- data.frame(height = rep(heIn, colSums(crimtab)))# 2) shuffle the data:set.seed(1)
d.hei <- d.hei[sample(1:3000), , drop = FALSE]# 3) Make 750 samples each of size 4:d.hei$sample <- as.factor(rep(1:750, each = 4))# 4) Compute the means and standard deviations (n) for the 750 samples:h.mean <- with(d.hei, tapply(height, sample, FUN = mean))
h.sd   <- with(d.hei, tapply(height, sample, FUN = sd)) * sqrt(3/4)# 5) Compute the difference between the mean of each sample and
#    the mean of the population and then divide by the
#    standard deviation of the sample:zobs <- (h.mean - mean(d.hei[,"height"]))/h.sd# 6) Replace infinite values by +/- 6 as in Student's paper:zobs[infZ <- is.infinite(zobs)] # 3 of them
zobs[infZ] <- 6 * sign(zobs[infZ])# 7) Plot the distribution:require(grDevices); require(graphics)
hist(x = zobs, probability = TRUE, xlab = "Student's z",
     col = grey(0.8), border = grey(0.5),
     main = "Distribution of Student's z score  for 'crimtab' data")

How To Import a Dataset
  1. Create a Picostat account or login with your existing picostat account (see above).
  2. Go to the dataset import page.
  3. Select a license for the dataset. The default is "No License" but allows Picostat to host a copy of the dataset as per the privacy policy. You may wish to uncheck the "Public" option if you do not wish to share your dataset with others. R Datasets that come by downloading R have a GNU General Public License v3.0 which may also be selected from the Picostat dropdown.
  4. Enter a title for the dataset
  5. Choose a dataset input methods. Available options include:
    • Random data - this populates your dataset with random numbers between 0 and 100. You can specify the number of rows and columns for the random dataset.
    • CSV, TSV or TXT file - you will have the option upload a file within the current file size limit and also specify the header and whether or not the dataset is a contingency table. With contingency tables, the first column becomes a label for the rows. Currently with Picostat, there is limited support for contingency tables. Choose "Yes" to the Header option if the first line of the data contains titles for the rows. Also choose the Separator for the dataset. A separator is what breaks the data up. In some cases, a comma would separate data values in a row. You will also have the option to add documentation in the form keyboarded text and also uploaded documentation attachments. You can also specify a license for the documentation.
    • Copy and Paste. This selection contains many of the same fields as importing a file with an additional textarea to copy and paste data to.
    • Empty dataset. Start with a blank dataset and manually add data with the Picostat dataset editor.
    • Excel file - Choose this option if you would like to convert your Excel spreadsheet to a Picostat dataset. With this selection, you will have the option to specify whether to use the first row in the Excel file as column names. If you would like to choose a specific sheet to use, you can also specify with entering its name in the text input.
    • sas7bdat file - SAS is a powerful statistical software package that has its own proprietary file format. Choose this option if you are importing a SAS file.
    • SPSS sav file - SPSS is a statistical package owned by IBM. You can import SPSS files by choosing this option.
  6. Choose whether or not the dataset contains a header. Some of the dataset input methods allow you to specify whether or not a Header exists on the file. Sometimes dataset files contain a Header as the first row which names the columns. If you choose "Yes" to this, the first row in the dataset will become column headers.
  7. You can also add documentation and specify a documentation license. This can be used to help explain your dataset to those unfamiliar with it.
  8. Choose whether or not to upload an supporting attachments.
  9. Pass the captcha. To prevent spam submissions, Picostat has a captcha which is used to prevent automated submissions by bots.
  10. Choose a privacy setting for the dataset. You can also specify whether or not the dataset is Public. If you uncheck this setting, only you and the Picostat administrator will be able to view the dataset.
  11. Submit the form. Once the form is validated, you will be redirected to the dataset homepage where you can choose to edit or perform statistical operations on the dataset.
