Statistical Graphics for Univariate and Bivariate Data

  • William G. Jacoby - Michigan State University, USA, University of South Carolina, Colombia


April 1997 | 104 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
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; and bivariate methods such as scatterplot construction guidelines, jittering for overplotted points, marginal boxplots, scatterplot slicing, the loess procedure for nonparametric scatterplot smoothing, banking to 45 degrees for enhanced visual perception.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
