R Dataset / Package cluster / agriculture


On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the agriculture data set which pertains to European Union Agricultural Workforces. The agriculture data set is found in the cluster R package. You can load the agriculture data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("agriculture"). This will load the data into a variable called agriculture. If R says the agriculture data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("cluster") 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 agriculture R data set. The size of this file is about 140 bytes.
