FILE | DESCRIPTION |

AIDS | The total number of cases of AIDS in the USA in 4 month intervals from 1982. |

BADMIN | This data set was obtained by dropping a badminton shuttlecock and recording its distance as a function of time. |

BOTSWANA | The population of Botswana from 1975 to 1990. |

BRAKE | The distance in feet a car travels when braking in an emergency stop as a function of the velocity of the car at the time the brakes are applied. |

CRAB | The claw weight versus body weight of fiddler-crabs. |

DENECKE | Paul Denecke, The University of Arizona, conducted the following experiment using a VCR equipped with a digital tape-counter. He put a tape in the unit, set the tapecounter to zero, and, as he started the tape playing, noted the time. He then kept recording the time and the number on the tapecounter. This data set was obtained in this way. It shows the number of revolutions - the number on the tapecounter - as a function of time in seconds. |

DOVES | The population of the collared dove as it spread throughout Britain from 1955 to 1964. |

DUCKWEED | The results of an experiment in which Duckweed fronds - large compound leaves - were counted every week. |

FREEFALL | This shows data that correspond to a sky diver in free fall in a stable spread-eagle position when falling from rest. It shows the sky diver's distance fallen as a function of the time. |

HOUSTON | The population of Houston from 1850 to 1980. |

JUMPS | The results of an experiment in which people fell freely from rest from various heights. It shows the distance fallen in feet as a function of time in seconds. |

KENYA | The population of Kenya for the period 1955 to 1990 in 5 year intervals. |

LEWIS | The times achieved every 10 meters by Carl Lewis in the 100 meter final of the World Championship in Rome in 1987. |

LIZARD | Experiments have been performed where a lizard is encouraged to run as fast as possible, starting from rest. The distance run is then measured as a function of time. |

NSPLAICE | The weight of North Sea plaice as a function of time. |

PLAICE | The results of an experiment relating the weight of plaice to its length. |

SPHERE | The data set was obtained by dropping a Styrofoam ball and recording its distance as a function of time. |

TOLUENE | The vapor pressure as a function of temperature of Toluene. |

USAPOP | The population of the USA from 1790 to 1990 in 10 year intervals. |

WORLDPOP | The world population from 1650 to 1990. |
