On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Housing data set which pertains to Sales Prices of Houses in the City of Windsor . The Housing data set is found in the Ecdat R package. Try to load the Housing data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Housing"). This may load the data into a variable called Housing. If R says the Housing data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Ecdat") and then attempt to reload the data with library("Ecdat") followed by data("Housing"). 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 Housing at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
