Visualizing Categorical Data by Michael Friendly



This book offers many new and more easily accessible graphical methods for representing categorical data using SAS software. Graphical methods for quantitative data are well developed and widely used. However, until now with this comprehensive treatment, few graphical methods existed for categorical data. In this innovative book, Friendly presents many aspects of the relationships among variables, the adequacy of a fitted model, and possibly unusual features of the data that can best be seen and appreciated in an informative graphical display. Filled with programs and data sets, this book focuses on the use, understanding, and interpretation of results. Where necessary, the statistical theory with a well-written explanation is also provided. Readers will also appreciate the implementation of these methods in the general macros and programs that are described in the book.
