Title: Fitting Percentage of Body Fat to Simple Body Measurements
Url: http://jse.amstat.org/v4n1/datasets.johnson.html
Creator: Johnson, Roger W.
Publisher: American Statistical Association
Description: The dataset, created by Roger W. Johnson of Carleton College, presented in this article, contains body measurements for 252 men and can be used to illustrate multiple regression and to provide practice in model building. Some of these measurements include: body fat, age, weight, height and ten different body circumference measurements. The author shows how to "fit body fat to the other measurement using multiple regression" and provide a easy method to estimating body fat percentage. This is a good example of using regression and also model building.
