Visual statistics; seeing data with dynamic interactive graphics.


Visual statistics; seeing data with dynamic interactive graphics.

Young, Forrest W. et al.



363 pages




Using a unique system of animated graphics available for free on the Internet, this brings statistical literacy at a complex and advanced level to those with little training in statistics. The authors work at the visual, intuitive, geometric and active level for undergraduates studying data analysis and regression, covering seeing data as a process in interfaces and environments (including character-based and graphics-based interfaces, plots and spreadplots) and tools and techniques (types of controls, data sheets and plots), and seeing data as objects in terms of frequency data (frequency plots and visual fitting of log-linear models), and univariate, bivariate and multivariate data using plots.
