This dataset is designed for teaching simple regression. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the U.S. Statistical Abstracts, 2012, and the example looks specifically at whether the poverty rate in a state predicts a state’s infant mortality rate. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide, a Student Guide, and a How-to Guide for Stata. The Student Guide and data curation were done by the Odum Institute, and the How-to Guide was co-authored by Abigail-Kate Reid and Nick Allum.
