R Dataset / Package mosaicData / Riders
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Riders data set which pertains to Volume of Users of a Massachusetts Rail Trail. The Riders data set is found in the mosaicData R package. Try to load the Riders data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Riders"). This may load the data into a variable called Riders. If R says the Riders 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 with library("mosaicData") followed by data("Riders"). 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 Riders 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 Riders R data set. The size of this file is about 5,095 bytes.
Volume of Users of a Massachusetts Rail Trail
The Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) collected data north of Chestnut Street in Florence, MA for ninety days from April 5, 2005 to November 15, 2005. Data collectors set up a laser sensor, with breaks in the laser beam recording when a rail-trail user passed the data collection station.
A data frame with 90 observations on the following 12 variables.
There is a potential for error when two users trigger the infrared beam at exactly the same time since the counter would only logs one of the crossings. The collectors left the motion detector out during the winter, but because the counter drops data when the temperature falls below 14 degrees Fahrenheit, there are no data for the coldest winter months.
