R Dataset / Package Stat2Data / TwinsLungs
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the TwinsLungs data set which pertains to TwinsLungs. The TwinsLungs data set is found in the Stat2Data R package. Try to load the TwinsLungs data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("TwinsLungs"). This may load the data into a variable called TwinsLungs. If R says the TwinsLungs 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("TwinsLungs"). 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 TwinsLungs 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 TwinsLungs R data set. The size of this file is about 257 bytes.
Comparing lung function for twins between rural and urban environments
A dataset with 14 observations on the following 3 variables.
This dataset is from a study to compare the effect of living environment (rural or urban) on human lung function, where the researchers were able to locate seven pairs of twins with one twin in each pair living in the country, the other in a city. To measure lung function, twins inhaled an aerosol of radioactive Teflon particles. By measuring the level of radioactivity immediately and then again after an hour, the scientists could measure the rate of “tracheobronchial clearance." The percentage of radioactivity remaining in the lungs after an hour told how quickly subjects' lungs cleared the inhaled particles.
“Urban factor and tracheobronchial clearance" by Per Camner and Klas Philipson in Archives of Environmental Health, V. 27 (1973), page 82. Data can be found in Introduction to Mathematical Statistics and its Applications, 2nd Edition by Richard J. Larson and Morris L. Marx. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall, p. 548.
