Description: This dataset, created by Peter K. Dunn of the University of Southern Queensland, contains the time of birth, sex, and birth weight for 44 babies born in one 24-hour period at a hospital in Brisbane, Australia. The data can be used for studying some common distributions like the normal, binomial, geometric, Poisson, and exponential. In regards to the dataset, the author states: "Because the dataset is small and easily understood, it provides a useful classroom example for discussing these distributions. "
