R Dataset / Package psych / peas
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the peas data set which pertains to Galton's Peas. The peas data set is found in the psych R package. Try to load the peas data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("peas"). This may load the data into a variable called peas. If R says the peas data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("psych") and then attempt to reload the data with library("psych") followed by data("peas"). 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 peas 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 peas R data set. The size of this file is about 6,317 bytes.
Francis Galton introduced the correlation coefficient with an analysis of the similarities of the parent and child generation of 700 sweet peas.
A data frame with 700 observations on the following 2 variables.
Galton's introduction of the correlation coefficient was perhaps the most important contribution to the study of individual differences. This data set allows a graphical analysis of the data set. There are two different graphic examples. One shows the regression lines for both relationships, the other finds the correlation as well.
