# R Dataset / Package DAAG / nswpsid1

Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the nswpsid1 data set which pertains to Labour Training Evaluation Data. The nswpsid1 data set is found in the DAAG R package. You can load the nswpsid1 data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("nswpsid1"). This will load the data into a variable called nswpsid1. If R says the nswpsid1 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 nswpsid1 R data set. The size of this file is about 117,396 bytes.

## Labour Training Evaluation Data

### Description

This data frame contains 2787 rows and 10 columns. These data are pertinent to an investigation of the way that earnings changed, between 1974-1975 and 1978, in the absence of training. Data for the experimental treatment group in nswdemo are combined with the psid1 control data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) study.

### Usage

psid1

### Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

trt

a numeric vector identifying the study in which the subjects were enrolled (0 = Control, 1 = treated).

age

age (in years).

educ

years of education.

black

(0 = not black, 1 = black).

hisp

(0 = not hispanic, 1 = hispanic).

marr

(0 = not married, 1 = married).

nodeg

(0 = completed high school, 1 = dropout).

re74

real earnings in 1974.

re75

real earnings in 1975.

re78

real earnings in 1978.

### Details

The cps1 and psid1 data sets are two non-experimental "control" groups, alternative to that in nswdemo, used in investigating whether use of such a non-experimental control group can be satisfactory. cps2 and cps3 are subsets of cps1, designed to be better matched to the experimental data than cps1. Similary psid2 and psid3 are subsets of psid1, designed to be better matched to the experimental data than psid1. nswpsid1 combines data for the experimental treatment group in nswdemo with the psid1 control data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) study.
