The data give the survival times (in hours) in a 3 x 4 factorial experiment, the factors being (a) three poisons and (b) four treatments. Each combination of the two factors is used for four animals. The allocation to animals is completely randomized.
A data frame with 48 observations on the following 3 variables.
type of poison (1, 2, or 3)
manner of treatment (1, 2, 3, or 4)
time until death (hours)
These data are also available from OzDASL, the Australian Data and Story Library (http://www.statsci.org). (Note: The time measurements of the data at OzDASL are in units of tens of hours.)
