AirlineDemoSmall: Small Airline Demonstration File
A small sample of airline on-time performance data.
An .xdf file with 600000 observations on the following 3 variables.
arrival delay, in minutes (stored as integer).
schedule departure time (stored as float32).
day of the week (stored as a factor).
This data set is a small subsample of airline on-time performance data containing only 600,000 observations of 3 variables, so it will fit in memory on most systems. It is an .xdf file, which means that the data are stored in blocks. The AirlineDemoSmall.xdf data file contains 3 blocks. It is compressed using zlib compression. The AirlineDemoSmallUC.xdf contains the same data, but without compression.
The data are also available in text format in the file AirlineDemoSmall.csv. A smaller subset, with only 1010 rows and no missing data, is available in text format in the file AirlineDemo1kNoMissing.csv.
