A statistics professor regularly keeps a pedometer in his pocket. It records not only the number of steps taken each day, but also the number of steps taken at a moderate pace, the number of minutes walked at a moderate pace, and the number of miles total that he walked. He also added to the data set the day of the week, whether it was rainy, sunny, or cold (on sunny days he often biked, but on rainy or cold days he did not), and whether it was a weekday or weekend.
