The columns in each files are separated by a tab character rather than multiple space characters so it should be possible to import them into virtually any statistical, database management, or spreadsheet package. Missing values are represented by * in all data files.
A single "shar" file containing all of the files is also available here. It can be unpacked to reproduce a directory containing the complete set of platform independent data files using the UNIX command "sh all.sh".
Description of data sources, and further information about the data sets, can be found in the "Descriptions of the data files" section of the book.
The files are here.
