Description

Counts of chromosome aberrations in atomic bombs survivors.

Format

A data frame containing 1039 observations on the following 4 variables.

n

the number of analyzed cells. It is fixed to 100 for all the observations.

dose

a quantitative measure of the radiation exposure level, expressed in rads.
