# R/sittingHeights.R In rwoldford/qqtest: Self Calibrating Quantile-Quantile Plots for Visual Testing

#' Sitting height in inches of female adults (aged 23-50).
#'
#' From measurements made by Francis Galton at London's International Health Exhibition in 1884, published in 1885.

#' \code{with(sittingHeights, plot(percentCumulative,upperBound, type="o", lwd=2, xlim=c(0,100), ylim=c(20,40),xlab="Percentage of women", ylab="Sitting heights in inches"))} will effect Galton's Ogive.
#'
#' \code{with(sittingHeights, qqtest(binCentre, dist="normal", p = proportionCumulativeAdjusted, np=775, main="Sitting heights of women in inches"))} will effect a normal qqplot for this data.
#'
#'
#' @format A data frame with 9 rows and 8 variates, the first 5 of which are as recorded by Galton:
#' \describe{
#'   \item{lowerBound}{Sitting height greater than or equal to this lower bound in inches.}
#'   \item{upperBound}{Sitting height strictly less than this upper bound in inches.}
#'   \item{nCases}{Number of cases observed with sitting height between the two bounds.}
#'   \item{nCasesCumulative}{Number of cases observed with sitting height up to but not including the upper bound.}
#'   \item{percentCumulative}{Cumulative number of cases expressed as a percent.}
#'   \item{binCentre}{Average of the lower and upper bounds.}
#'   \item{nCasesCentred}{Number of cases assigned to the binCentre; half of cases observed with sitting height between the two bounds is assigned to be below the binCentre, half above (avoids producing 100 percent for last entry).}
#'   \item{proportionCumulativeAdjusted}{Cumulative proportions using nCasesCentred. }
