Details

This data was collected online and anonymously in 2010. The respondents were students studying an undergraduate statistics course at a New Zealand university. Possibly there are duplicate students (due to failing and re-enrolling). All monies are in NZD. Note the data has had minimal checking. Most numerical variables tend to have measurement error, and all of them happen to be all integer-valued.
