This is the author's website for the monograph
Springer, New York, 2008.
Website established in November 2007.
Supporting materials for Studying Human Populations comprise:
datasets and their explanation; and
code (in R) for their processing and analysis.
The files with datasets have extensions .dat;
the files with explanation .tex; and
the files with code .an?,
where ? is a single digit (1, 2, ... ) or
character (a, b, ...).
There are some slight deviations from these conventions.
The names of the files for the exercises are EX*;
the names of the files for the computations, analyses and
graphics in the chapters (text) are Ch*,
where * indicates the chapter.
Downloading (zip files):
Datasets for the examples
(problems following each chapter) and their explanation.
Code for generating the datasets
used in the examples.
Code for the examples, tables and
figures in the text.

Unfortunately, the order and composition of the chapters was
altered a few times while compiling the text,
A guide is given in the following table:
and so the numbers in Ch* differ from the chapter numbers
in the published text.
