On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the mgus2 data set which pertains to Monoclonal gammapothy data. The mgus2 data set is found in the survival R package. You can load the mgus2 data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("mgus2"). This will load the data into a variable called mgus2. If R says the mgus2 data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("survival") and then attempt to reload the data. 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 mgus2 R data set. The size of this file is about 47,081 bytes.
Monoclonal gammapothy data

gammapothy of undetermined significance (MGUS).
A data frame with 1384 observations on the following 10 variables.
age at diagnosis, in years
a factor with levels
size of the monoclonal serum splike
time until progression to a plasma cell
malignancy (PCM) or last contact, in months
occurrence of PCM: 0=no, 1=yes
time until death or last contact, in months
occurrence of death: 0=no, 1=yes
This is a larger follow-on study of the condition also found in data
