Vaso Constriction Skin Data Set

Description

Finney's data on vaso constriction in the skin of the digits.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 39 observations on the following 3 variables.

Volume

Inhaled volume of air

Rate

Rate of inhalation

Y

vector of 0 or 1 values.

Details

The data taken from Finney (1947) were obtained in a carefully controlled study in human physiology where a reflex “vaso constriction” may occur in the skin of the digits after taking a single deep breath. The response y is the occurence (y = 1) or non-occurence (y = 0) of vaso constriction in the skin of the digits of a subject after he or she inhaled a certain volume of air at a certain rate. The responses of three subjects are available. The first contributed 9 responses, the second contributed 8 responses, and the third contributed 22 responses.

Although the data represent repeated measurements, an analysis that assumes independent observations may be applied, as claimed by Pregibon (1981).
