Details

There are a number of related versions of the Titanic data, in various formats. This version was derived from ptitanic in the rpart.plot package, modifying it to remove the Class 'labelled' attributes for some variables (inherited from Frank Harrell's titanic3 version) which caused problems with some applications, notably ggplot2.

Other versions:

Titanic is the 4-way frequency table of all 2201 people aboard the Titanic, including passengers and crew.

Source

The original R source for this dataset was compiled by Frank Harrell and Robert Dawson: https://biostat.app.vumc.org/wiki/pub/Main/DataSets/titanic.html, described in more detail in https://biostat.app.vumc.org/wiki/pub/Main/DataSets/titanic3info.txt

For this version of the Titanic data, passenger details were deleted, survived was cast as a factor, and the name changed to Titanicp to minimize confusion with other versions.
