R Dataset / Package vcd / Bundestag2005
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Bundestag2005 data set which pertains to Votes in German Bundestag Election 2005. The Bundestag2005 data set is found in the vcd R package. Try to load the Bundestag2005 data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Bundestag2005"). This may load the data into a variable called Bundestag2005. If R says the Bundestag2005 data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("vcd") and then attempt to reload the data with library("vcd") followed by data("Bundestag2005"). 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 Bundestag2005 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 Bundestag2005 R data set. The size of this file is about 789 bytes.
