Description

Probable risk factors for coronary trombosis, comprising data from 1841 men.

Usage

data(coronary)

Format

The coronary data set contains the following 6 variables:

  • Smoking (smoking): a two-level factor with levels no and yes.

  • M. Work (strenuous mental work): a two-level factor with levels no and yes.

  • P. Work (strenuous physical work): a two-level factor with levels no and yes.

  • Pressure (systolic blood pressure): a two-level factor with levels <140 and >140.

  • Proteins (ratio of beta and alpha lipoproteins): a two-level factor with levels <3 and >3.

  • Family (family anamnesis of coronary heart disease): a two-level factor with levels neg and pos.
