Dataset Help

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the precip data set which pertains to Annual Precipitation in US Cities. The precip data set is found in the datasets R package. You can load the precip data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("precip"). This will load the data into a variable called precip. If R says the precip 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 precip R data set. The size of this file is about 328 bytes.

Description

The average amount of precipitation (rainfall) in inches for each of 70 United States (and Puerto Rico) cities.

Examples

require(graphics)
dotchart(precip[order(precip)], main = "precip data")
title(sub = "Average annual precipitation (in.)")## Old ("wrong") version of dataset (just name change):
precip.O <- local({
   p <- precip; names(p)[names(p) == "Cincinnati"] <- "Cincinati" ; p })
stopifnot(all(precip == precip.O),
	  match("Cincinnati", names(precip)) == 46,
	  identical(names(precip)[-46], names(precip.O)[-46]))
