On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Galton data set which pertains to Galton's dataset of parent and child heights. The Galton data set is found in the mosaicData R package. You can load the Galton data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Galton"). This will load the data into a variable called Galton. If R says the Galton data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("mosaicData") 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 Galton R data set. The size of this file is about 20,032 bytes.

Documentation

Galton's dataset of parent and child heights

Description

In the 1880's, Francis Galton was developing ways to quantify the heritability of traits. As part of this work, he collected data on the heights of adult children and their parents.

Usage

data(Galton)

Format

A data frame with 898 observations on the following variables.

  • family a factor with levels for each family

  • father the father's height (in inches)

  • mother the mother's height (in inches)

  • sex the child's sex: F or M

  • height the child's height as an adult (in inches)

  • nkids the number of adult children in the family, or, at least, the number whose heights Galton recorded.

Details

Entries were deleted for those children whose heights were not recorded numerically by Galton, who sometimes used entries such as “tall”, “short”, “idiotic”, “deformed” and so on.
