On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the fgl data set which pertains to Measurements of Forensic Glass Fragments. The fgl data set is found in the MASS R package. You can load the fgl data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("fgl"). This will load the data into a variable called fgl. If R says the fgl data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("MASS") 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 fgl R data set. The size of this file is about 12,997 bytes.

It was collected by B. German on fragments of glass
collected in forensic work.
This data frame contains the following columns:
refractive index; more precisely the refractive index is 1.518xxxx.

The fragments were originally classed into seven types, one of which
was absent in this dataset. The categories which occur are
