Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the mgus2 data set which pertains to Monoclonal gammapothy data. The mgus2 data set is found in the survival R package. You can load the mgus2 data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("mgus2"). This will load the data into a variable called mgus2. If R says the mgus2 data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("survival") 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 mgus2 R data set. The size of this file is about 47,081 bytes.
