R Dataset / Package HSAUR / BCG
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the BCG data set which pertains to BCG Vaccine Data . The BCG data set is found in the HSAUR R package. Try to load the BCG data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("BCG"). This may load the data into a variable called BCG. If R says the BCG data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("HSAUR") and then attempt to reload the data with library("HSAUR") followed by data("BCG"). 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 BCG 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 BCG R data set. The size of this file is about 408 bytes.
BCG Vaccine Data
A meta-analysis on the efficacy of BCG vaccination against tuberculosis (TB).
A data frame with 13 observations on the following 7 variables.
Bacille Calmette Guerin (BCG) is the most widely used vaccination in the world. Developed in the 1930s and made of a live, weakened strain of Mycobacterium bovis, the BCG is the only vaccination available against tuberculosis today. Colditz et al. (1994) report data from 13 clinical trials of BCG vaccine each investigating its efficacy in the treatment of tuberculosis. The number of subjects suffering from TB with or without BCG vaccination are given here. In addition, the data contains the values of two other variables for each study, namely, the geographic latitude of the place where the study was undertaken and the year of publication. These two variables will be used to investigate and perhaps explain any heterogeneity among the studies.
