1 |

A data frame with 928 observations on the following 2 variables.

- child
The child's height

- parent
The “midparent” height

The midparent's height is an average of the fathers height and 1.08 times
the mother's. In the data there are 205 different parents and 928 children.
The data here is truncated at the ends for both parents and
children so that it can be treated as numeric data. The data were
tabulated and consequently made discrete. The `father.son`

data set is
similar data used by Galton and is continuous.

This data was found at http://www.bun.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~suchii/galton86.html.

See also the data.set father.son which was found from http://stat-www.berkeley.edu/users/juliab/141C/pearson.dat.
