« Wrong variable and omitted record | Main | The sad tally 2: the data »


Mike Anderson

I hope you'll publish AN answer tomorrow; I'm not sure there is only THE answer.

This is great stuff! I'm shamelessly swiping the data and the randomness question to make this into a short project for my statistics undergraduates. At least 4 hypothesis tests come to mind immediately; I suspect my students will think up several more. Thanks!


Let me clarify - the "answer" that I will post here is merely which graph has the real data.

As for randomness, there are good answers and bad answers but hardly one answer. Good luck to your students!

can you post the data or send it to me. I would love to run some fractal analysis on it. I would also suspect you can do any of the other quadrat analysis techniques. Yipee - it's spatial data, fun fun...


Bottom right.
