Matched Low Birth Weight data
112 observations (rows)
and 9 variables (columns).
This data was collected as
part of a larger study at Bayside Medical Center,
It contains information on 56 cases
(of low birth weight deliveries) and
an equal number of age-matched controls.
The observed variable values were modified to protect patient confidentiality.
A one-to-one matched set was created from the low birth weight data. For each woman who gave birth to a low birth weight baby, a mother of the same age was randomly selected who did not give birth to a low birth weight baby. For three mothers aged < 17, it was not possible to identify a match.
