On this Rdata statistics page, you will find information about the mcycle data set which pertains to Data from a Simulated Motorcycle Accident. The mcycle data set is found in the MASS R package. You can load the mcycle data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("mcycle"). This will load the data into a variable called mcycle. If R says the mcycle data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("MASS") and then attempt to reload the data with the library() command. 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 mcycle R data set. The size of this file is about 1,324 bytes.
