### Format

A data frame with 84 observations on the following 2 variables.

`Size`

`Deaths`

number of lung cancer deaths.

### Details

The data set was analyzed using a Poisson model with normal random effect in Tsutakawa (1985), and using a binomial logit model with unspecified random effect distribution in Aitkin (1996b). Aitkin fitted this model with GLIM4.
