Data on Infant-Mortality


The Leinhardt data frame has 105 rows and 4 columns. The observations are nations of the world around 1970.




This data frame contains the following columns:


Per-capita income in U. S. dollars.


Infant-mortality rate per 1000 live births.


A factor with levels: Africa; Americas; Asia, Asia and Oceania; Europe.


Oil-exporting country. A factor with levels: no, yes.


The infant-mortality rate for Jamaica is misprinted in Leinhardt and Wasserman; the correct value is given here. Some of the values given in Leinhardt and Wasserman do not appear in the original New York Times table and are of dubious validity.
