The boxplot indicates a possible outlier, and the normal probability plot gives little cause for concern about departures from normality, although with only 18 observations it is perhaps difficult to draw any convincing conclusion. test function. 6 shows that there is no evidence for a difference in the mean bending stress of the two types of mooring device. 7. 316 confirming the result from the t-test. 3 available from R> data("water", package = "HSAUR") But to begin we will construct a scatterplot of the data enhanced somewhat by the addition of information about the marginal distributions of water hardness (calcium concentration) and mortality, and by adding the estimated linear regression fit (see Chapter 5) for mortality on hardness.

They show the annual mortality per 100,000 for males, averaged over the years 1958–1964, and the calcium concentration (in parts per million) in the drinking water for 61 large towns in England and Wales. The higher the calcium concentration, the harder the water. Towns at least as far north as Derby are identified in the © 2006 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC INTRODUCTION 23 table. Here there are several questions that might be of interest including: are mortality and water hardness related, and do either or both variables differ between northern and southern towns?
