R Dataset / Package HistData / Prostitutes
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Prostitutes data set which pertains to Parent-Duchatelet's time-series data on the number of prostitutes in Paris. The Prostitutes data set is found in the HistData R package. Try to load the Prostitutes data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Prostitutes"). This may load the data into a variable called Prostitutes. If R says the Prostitutes 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 with library("HistData") followed by data("Prostitutes"). 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 Prostitutes 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 Prostitutes R data set. The size of this file is about 15,129 bytes.
