Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the nwtco data set which pertains to Data from the National Wilm's Tumor Study. The nwtco data set is found in the survival R package. You can load the nwtco data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("nwtco"). This will load the data into a variable called nwtco. If R says the nwtco 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 nwtco R data set. The size of this file is about 113,680 bytes.
