On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Bowley data set which pertains to Bowley's data on values of British and Irish trade, 18551899. The Bowley data set is found in the HistData R package. You can load the Bowley data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Bowley"). This will load the data into a variable called Bowley. If R says the Bowley data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("HistData") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the Bowley R data set. The size of this file is about 497 bytes. Bowley's data on values of British and Irish trade, 18551899DescriptionIn one of the first statistical textbooks, Arthur Bowley (1901) used these data to illustrate an arithmetic and graphical analysis of timeseries data using the total value of British and Irish exports from 18551899. He presented a line graph of the timeseries data, supplemented by overlaid line graphs of 3, 5 and 10year moving averages. His goal was to show that while the initial series showed wide variability, moving averages made the series progressively smoother.
