R Dataset / Package datasets / ToothGrowth
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the ToothGrowth data set which pertains to The Effect of Vitamin C on Tooth Growth in Guinea Pigs. The ToothGrowth data set is found in the datasets R package. Try to load the ToothGrowth data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("ToothGrowth"). This may load the data into a variable called ToothGrowth. If R says the ToothGrowth 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("ToothGrowth"). 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 ToothGrowth 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 ToothGrowth R data set. The size of this file is about 760 bytes.
The Effect of Vitamin C on Tooth Growth in Guinea Pigs
The response is the length of odontoblasts (cells responsible for
tooth growth) in 60 guinea pigs. Each animal received one of three
dose levels of vitamin C (0.5, 1, and 2 mg/day) by one of two delivery
methods, (orange juice or ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C and coded
