DescriptionData includes measurements on mortality rate and explanatory variables (air-pollution, socio-economic and meteorological) for 60 US cities in 1960. This data was originally published in McDonald, G.C. and Schwing,
R.C. (1973) 'Instabilities of regression estimates relating air pollution
to mortality', Technometrics, vol.15, 463-482. It was redistributed through Carnegie Mellon University's StatLib (lib.stat.cmu.edu). Brief codebook notes that it is heavily used for research in ridge regression.
NoteAvailable as Microsoft Excel workbook (xslx); comma separated values (csv) and original plain text.
NoteData set was downloaded with permission from the Carnegie Mellon StatLib (http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/datasets/pollution)
NoteData set includes original text manifest and a small codebook explaining the 16 variables.
