There are numerous regression packages not directly linked to this book
for which the data files set up in ASCII (that is, text) format would
be appropriate. If you plan to use the book's data sets with one of
and have the CD that came with the
book, unzip the file
to get all the data files that contain just the
numerical values of the data as the ASCII text file
without a suffix. There is a corresponding header file
that contains the variable names, data sources, and units of
measurement (also described in Appendix D). Move these files to the
appropriate directory for loading with your regression program.
If you don't have the CD, you can
download ascii.zip from the internet and then unzip it.
