R Dataset / Package boot / islay


On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the islay data set which pertains to Jura Quartzite Azimuths on Islay. The islay data set is found in the boot R package. You can load the islay data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("islay"). This will load the data into a variable called islay. If R says the islay data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("boot") 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 islay R data set. The size of this file is about 69 bytes.
