A Dataset that Is 44% Outliers
Hayden, Robert W.
Journal of Statistics Education, v13 n1 Mar 2005
The data illustrate outliers that are not mistakes and not observations that are unusually high or low. The reasons for them are all interesting historically. They illustrate that "outliers" need not be errors but may instead be particularly interesting cases. The data also illustrate that different data displays may differ in their ability to reveal interesting data structure. (Contains 3 tables and 6 figures.)
