Breathlessness and Wheeze in Coal Miners

Description

Data from Ashford & Sowden (1970) given by Agresti (1990) on the association between two pulmonary conditions, breathlessness and wheeze, in a large sample of coal miners who were smokers with no radiological evidence of pneumoconlosis, aged between 20–64 when examined. This data is frequently used as an example of fitting models for bivariate, binary responses.

Usage

data("CoalMiners")

Format

A 3-dimensional table of size 2 x 2 x 9 resulting from cross-tabulating variables for 18,282 coal miners. The variables and their levels are as follows:

No Name Levels
1 Breathlessness B, NoB
2 Wheeze W, NoW
3 Age 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, ..., 60-64

Details

In an earlier version of this data set, the first group, aged 20-24, was inadvertently omitted from this data table and the breathlessness variable was called wheeze and vice versa.

fourfold(CoalMiners[,,2:9], mfcol = c(2,4))## Fourfold display, strata equated
fourfold(CoalMiners[,,2:9], std = "ind.max", mfcol = c(2,4))
