Level of GAG in Urine of Children


Data were collected on the concentration of a chemical GAG in the urine of 314 children aged from zero to seventeen years. The aim of the study was to produce a chart to help a paediatrican to assess if a child's GAG concentration is ‘normal’.




This data frame contains the following columns:


age of child in years.


concentration of GAG (the units have been lost).
