On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the ChestSizes data set which pertains to Chest measurements of 5738 Scottish Militiamen. The ChestSizes data set is found in the HistData R package. You can load the ChestSizes data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("ChestSizes"). This will load the data into a variable called ChestSizes. If R says the ChestSizes data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("HistData") 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 ChestSizes R data set. The size of this file is about 119 bytes.
