a
The smallpox data set provides a sample of 6,224 individuals from the year 1721 who were
exposed to smallpox in Boston. Doctors at the time believed that inoculation, which involves
exposing a person to the disease in a controlled form, could reduce the likelihood of death.
Each case represents one person with two variables: inoculated and result. The variable
inoculated takes two levels: yes or no, indicating whether the person was inoculated or not. The
variable result has outcomes lived or died. These data are summarized in Tables 3.15 and 3.16.
