The Datasaurus Dozen is a set of datasets with the same summary statistics. They
retain the same summary statistics despite having radically different distributions.
The datasets represent a larger and quirkier object lesson that is typically taught
via Anscombe's Quartet (available in the 'datasets' package). Anscombe's Quartet
contains four very different distributions with the same summary statistics and as
such highlights the value of visualisation in understanding data, over and above
summary statistics. As well as being an engaging variant on the Quartet, the data
is generated in a novel way. The simulated annealing process used to derive datasets
from the original Datasaurus is detailed in "Same Stats, Different Graphs: Generating
Datasets with Varied Appearance and Identical Statistics through Simulated Annealing"
