Example Data of Antille and May - for Simple Regression

Description

This is an artificial data set, cleverly construced and used by Antille and May to demonstrate ‘problems’ with LMS and LTS.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 12 observations on 2 variables, x and y.

Details

Because the points are not in general position, both LMS and LTS typically fail; however, e.g., rlm(*, method="MM") “works”.
