On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the psid2 data set which pertains to Labour Training Evaluation Data. The psid2 data set is found in the DAAG R package. You can load the psid2 data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("psid2"). This will load the data into a variable called psid2. If R says the psid2 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 psid2 R data set. The size of this file is about 9,733 bytes.
