Description of Dataset The data were obtained in a carefully controlled study of the effect of the RATE and VOLume of air inspired by human subjects on the occurrence (coded 1) or non-occurrence (coded 0) of a transient vasoconstriction RESPonse in the skin of the fingers. Three subjects were involved in the study: the first contributed 9 observations at different values of RATE and VOL, the second 8, and the third 22 observations. The experiment was designed to ensure as far as possible that successive observations obtained on each subject were independent: serial correlation between successive observations on the same subject is such studies is always a possibility. The aim is to fit a statistical model relating RESP to RATE and VOL. (Aitkin, et al. p.167).
