Pneumoconiosis among coalminers

Data on the degree of pneumoconiosis in coalface workers were collected in order to examine the relationship between exposure time (in years) and degree of disease (Ashford, 1959). Severity of disease was originally rated into three categories, but here we will use only two (normal and diseased). Log.time shows the logarithmic transformation of Time.
