Format

A data frame with 38 observations on 5 variables.

Details

The data contains an outlying cluster of observations 33 to 38 a second outlier cluster of observations 7 to 11 and a few more isolated outliers, namely observations 12, 13, 31 and 32. bushfirem is created from bushfire by setting a proportion of 0.2 of the values to missing.
