carrots: Insect Damages on Carrots

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

The damage carrots data set from Phelps (1982) was used by McCullagh and Nelder (1989) in order to illustrate diagnostic techniques because of the presence of an outlier. In a soil experiment trial with three blocks, eight levels of insecticide were applied and the carrots were tested for insect damage.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 24 observations on the following 4 variables.

success

integer giving the number of carrots with insect damage.

total

integer giving the total number of carrots per experimental unit.

logdose

a numeric vector giving log(dose) values (eight different levels only).

block

factor with levels B1 to B3
