About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

US Birth Data (1994-2003)

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

US birth data from 1994 to 2003, as provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/datasets-cdc-nchs-us-births-1994-2003

Usage

var dataset = require( '@stdlib/datasets-cdc-nchs-us-births-1994-2003' );

dataset()

Returns US birth data from 1994 to 2003, as provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.

var data = dataset();
// returns [ {...}, ... ]

Each element in the returned database has the following fields:

  • year: year.
  • month: month, where January is denoted by 1.
  • date_of_month: day number of the month.
  • day_of_week: day of week, where Monday is 1 and Sunday is 7.
  • births: number of births.

Examples

var incrmean = require( '@stdlib/stats-incr-mean' );
var dataset = require( '@stdlib/datasets-cdc-nchs-us-births-1994-2003' );

function mean( a, b ) {
    return ( a + b ) / 2.0;
}

function reldiff( a, b ) {
    return 100.0 * ( (a-b)/a );
}

/*
* GOAL: determine whether people avoid giving birth on the 13th of each month.
*
* NOTE: for a more thorough analysis, we'd account for holidays.
*/

// Retrieve the data:
var data = dataset();

// Initialize arrays for storing births for particular day numbers:
var d6or20 = [ [], [], [], [], [], [], [] ];
var d13 = [ [], [], [], [], [], [], [] ];

// Extract the day number data...
var d;
var w;
var i;
for ( i = 0; i < data.length; i++ ) {
    d = data[ i ].date_of_month;
    w = data[ i ].day_of_week;
    if ( d === 6 ) {
        // Average of days 6 and 20 for the same month:
        d6or20[ w-1 ].push( mean( data[ i ].births, data[ i+14 ].births ) );
    } else if ( d === 13 ) {
        d13[ w-1 ].push( data[ i ].births );
    }
}

// Initialize accumulators for computing the average relative difference...
var means = [];
for ( i = 0; i < 7; i++ ) {
    means.push( incrmean() );
}

// Compute the average relative difference between days 6/20 with day 13...
var l1;
var l2;
var mu;
var j;
for ( i = 0; i < 7; i++ ) {
    l1 = d13[ i ];
    l2 = d6or20[ i ];
    mu = means[ i ];
    for ( j = 0; j < l1.length; j++ ) {
        mu( reldiff( l1[ j ], l2[ j ] ) );
    }
}

// Print the results...
for ( i = 0; i < 7; i++ ) {
    console.log( '%d: %d%', i+1, means[ i ]().toFixed( 3 ) );
}
