PH207x Data Sets

PH207x uses a handful of data sets. One of them, from the NHLBI, is the Framingham Data Set for Stata. If you need a version that works with software other than the free copy of Stata provided with this course, we have one for older versions of Stata and the same data available as a .csv file which will work with most other systems.

A few notes:

  • The fhs.csv dataset no longer has detailed variable labels, so make sure you have read and have access to the dataset documentation.

  • If you are an R user, try using the original fhs.dta dataset, and reading it into R via the foreign library (see the R wiki page for more information).

  • If you are using the version of Stata distributed through this course, don't worry about using the last two datasets above!
