"Data: A Collection of Problems from Many Fields for the Student and Research Worker" by Andrews and Herzberg : https://www.amazon.com/Data-Collection-Problems-Research-Statistics/dp/0387961259/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1465372463&sr=1-1&keywords=DATA+andrews+Herzberg is a book with data and descriptions for teaching and learning statistics and data analysis. The datasets from the book used to be on the internet, but now I cannot find them!

Specifically, they used to be on statlib, but now that seems inaccessible too! Anybody knows where that data collection can be found now?

The StatLib web site seems to be available again, but oddly, not all datasets from Andrews and Herzberg can be retrieved (20 out of 100 are missing).

There is also a copy at Duke, with all datasets.


I found it finally, the main statlib site seems to be down but there is a mirror at ftp://ftp.uni-bayreuth.de/pub/math/statlib/oldindex.html and the Andrews and Herzberg data can be fount at ftp://ftp.uni-bayreuth.de/pub/math/statlib/datasets/Andrews/
