Graphical displays that researchers can employ as an integral part of the data analysis process are frequently more revealing than traditional, numerical summary statistics. Providing strategies for examining data more effectively, this volume focuses on: univariate methods such as histograms, smoothed histograms, univariate scatterplots, quantile plots, box plots, dot plots. It describes bivariate methods such as scatterplot construction guidelines, jittering for overplotted points, marginal boxplots, scatterplot slicing, the Loess procedure for nonparametric scatterplot smoothing, and banking to 45 degrees for enhanced visual perception.
