Actually, no. It's a data set that is used to teach Pearson's
correlation coefficient in a popular statistics textbook - "Statistics"
by Freedman, Pisani, et al.
It contains over a thousand measurements of son's and their father's
I would like to find it in electronic form so that I can use it to
prepare figures and examples for a lecture.
If anyone knows where I could find it, please let me know. I've done a
few Google searches but haven't had any luck so far. I also used the
data() command to look through R's built-in data sets and couldn't find
it. Any suggestions would be most welcome!
