Hello Celine,

you are very lucky to get a dataset with 186 mln observations! It
sounds like all your estimates are going to be very robust and
efficient. :)

In general you can't fit a 14Gb dataset into 1Gb of memory. So you can check:

1. do you need all observations? or a random subsample will do?
2. you can cut your data into smaller portions and work with them one by one
3. see if you can store your data more efficiently to take up less space

Best regards, Sergiy
