This page is planned to contain both traditional data sets used
by the researchers and novel data sets from GaTech research.
Bayesian Statistics: Data Sets
Classical data set for logit/probit regression.
The time intervals in days between successive coal
mining accidents involving more than ten men killed
during the period 1851 to 1962 in Great Britain
were reported by Jarrett (1979). This dataset
is a corrected and extended version of the dataset
previously given by Maguire et al. (1952).
The number of accidents
occurring over a given time period can be looked
on as having a Poisson distribution. For the
the application involving Poisson changepoint Jarrett/Maguire's data are binned
in time intervals of 1 year and given below
as a matlab input.
minedata = [4,5,4,1,0,4,3,4,0,6,3,3,4,0,2,6,3,3,5,4,5,3,1,4,4,1,5,5,3,...
