Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the jobs data set which pertains to Canadian Labour Force Summary Data (1995-96). The jobs data set is found in the DAAG R package. You can load the jobs data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("jobs"). This will load the data into a variable called jobs. If R says the jobs data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("DAAG") 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 jobs R data set. The size of this file is about 136,796 bytes.
