SiegelsEx: Siegel's Exact Fit Example Data

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

A small counterexample data set devised by Andrew Siegel. Six (out of nine) data points lie on the line y = 0 such that some robust regression estimators exhibit the “exact fit” property.

Usage

1
data(SiegelsEx, package="robustbase")

Format

A data frame with 9 observations on the following 2 variables.

x

a numeric vector

y
