On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the phosphor data set which pertains to Phosphorus Content Data. The phosphor data set is found in the robustbase R package. You can load the phosphor data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("phosphor"). This will load the data into a variable called phosphor. If R says the phosphor data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("robustbase") 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 phosphor R data set. The size of this file is about 217 bytes.
