On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Whickham data set which pertains to Data from the Whickham survey. The Whickham data set is found in the mosaicData R package. Try to load the Whickham data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Whickham"). This may load the data into a variable called Whickham. If R says the Whickham 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("Whickham"). 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 Whickham at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
