Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This dataset contains 95th percentile values from frequency distributions of Mahalanobis’ distances (D2) calculated from extant hominoid models for each analysis used in the study. These values are used to evaluate the significance of the D2 values between fossil specimens. If D2 values are greater than the values presented in this table, then it is classified as statistically significant. Bolded red values indicate distances that are statistically significant compared to all of the 95% values from frequency distributions of Mahalanobis' distances calculated between extant hominoid models. Non-bolded red values indicate distances that are significant for at least one model.
