I am looking for the original data set for: the "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_tank_problem" , but can't seem to find it.

Any suggestions on where it might be available from?

  • Hi Tal, as fascinating as an answer might be, requests for specific data sets are explicitly off topic here. (From the middle of that page: "Questions about obtaining particular datasets are off-topic (they are too specialized).")

    Hi Glen, bummer. Since this is such a basic dataset, I thought it would fit (I didn't notice that off topic thread). I will delete the question, but how may I get an answer for it?

In the original Ruggles and Brodie (1947) paper (PDF) you can find some data and visualizations. It's not the raw data, but you can simulate raw data based on the percentages.

See, for example, this table:
