R Dataset / Package Stat2Data / Popcorn
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Popcorn data set which pertains to Popcorn. The Popcorn data set is found in the Stat2Data R package. Try to load the Popcorn data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Popcorn"). This may load the data into a variable called Popcorn. If R says the Popcorn data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Stat2Data") and then attempt to reload the data with library("Stat2Data") followed by data("Popcorn"). 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 Popcorn 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 Popcorn R data set. The size of this file is about 199 bytes.
Unpopped kernels in bags of microwave popcorn
A dataset with 12 observations on the following 3 variables.
Two students, Lara and Lisa, conducted an experiment to compare Orville Redenbacher's Light Butter Flavor vs. Seaway microwave popcorn. They made 12 batches of popcorn, 6 of each type, cooking each batch for four minutes. They noted that the microwave oven seemed to get warmer as they went along so they kept track of six trials and randomly chose which brand would go first for each trial. For a response variable they counted the number of unpopped kernels and then adjusted the count for Seaway for having more ounces per bag of popcorn (3.5 vs 3.0).
