nutrient data frame consists of quintuples consisting of four day measurements for intake of calcium, iron, protein, vitamin A and C from women aged 25 to 50 in the United States as part of the "Continuing Survey of Food Intakes of Individuals" program. The processed data has
737 measurements from a cohort study of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and it is available online from the University of Pennsylvania repository.
This data frame contains the following columns:
A numeric vector containing the identification of the participant.
A numeric vector containing measured calcium.
A numeric vector containing iron measurements.
A numeric vector containing protein measurements.
A numeric vector containing vitamin A measurements.
A numeric vector containing vitamin C measurements.
The survey data was processed by Dr. Andrew Wiesner for a course on multivariate statistics at The Pennsylvania State University.
