The Data Desk file Age vs DUI Arrests contains data collected by the Highway Patrol in a large southern state. It gives the DUI arrests per 100,000 state residents for each age group from16 years through 70 years. Each case in this data file is an age group. The two measurements taken on each case are the age of people in it and the number of DUI arrests per 100,000 people in that age group. For example, one case in the AGE variable has a value of 28; the corresponding value in the DUI variable is 12.66. This means that among 28-year olds in this state, there were 12.66 DUI arrests per 100,000 of them. (NOTE: This does NOT mean that 12.66 28-year-olds were arrested, NOR does it mean that there were exactly 100,000 28-year-olds in this state.)

A portion of the data is shown at the right.
