Description Usage Format Details Source Examples

The dataset is a subset of the longitudinal cohort of Washington University (WU) Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC). In the AL dataset, measurements of 14 neuropsychological markers were collected on 118 independent individuals of age 75. The individuals were classified into 3 groups based on publsihed clinical demential rating (CDR).

A data frame with 118 observations on the following 15 variables.

`group`

a factor with levels

*D^-*,*D^0**D^+*, the*D^-*group has CDR (clinical demential rating)=0, i.e., no dementia group; the*D^0*group has CDR=0.5, i.e., mild dementia and the*D^+*group has CDR=1, Alzheimer's disease.`FACTOR1`
