R Dataset / Package datasets / swiss
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the swiss data set which pertains to Swiss Fertility and Socioeconomic Indicators (1888) Data. The swiss data set is found in the datasets R package. Try to load the swiss data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("swiss"). This may load the data into a variable called swiss. If R says the swiss 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 with library("datasets") followed by data("swiss"). 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 swiss 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 swiss R data set. The size of this file is about 1,660 bytes.
Swiss Fertility and Socioeconomic Indicators (1888) Data
Standardized fertility measure and socio-economic indicators for each of 47 French-speaking provinces of Switzerland at about 1888.
A data frame with 47 observations on 6 variables, each of which is in percent, i.e., in [0, 100].
All variables but ‘Fertility’ give proportions of the population.
(paraphrasing Mosteller and Tukey):
Switzerland, in 1888, was entering a period known as the demographic transition; i.e., its fertility was beginning to fall from the high level typical of underdeveloped countries.
The data collected are for 47 French-speaking “provinces” at about 1888.
Here, all variables are scaled to [0, 100], where in the
original, all but
