Orthodont: Orthodont dataset from R-package 'nlme'

Description Usage Format References


The Orthodont data frame has 108 rows and 4 columns of the change in an orthdontic measurement over time for several young subjects.

This dataset was included to simplify its usage in automated unit-tests (see directory UnitTests) and examples.

Investigators at the University of North Carolina Dental School followed the growth of 27 children (16 males, 11 females) from age 8 until age 14. Every two years they measured the distance between the pituitary and the pterygomaxillary fissure, two points that are easily identified on x-ray exposures of the side of the head.
