Rowers vs. Coxswain

This data file comes from the Data and Story Library (DASL).  It contains the weights in stones and pounds of the crews participating in the Oxford and Cambridge boat race in 1992.  Students will analyze the data using histograms and summary statistics.  Also, this data set makes it easy to explore the effects of outliers.
