Statistical Visualization

View data patterns and trends

Explore single-variable distributions using univariate plots such as box plots and histograms. Show the relationships between variables using bivariate plots such as grouped scatter plots and bivariate histograms. Visualize the relationship between multiple variables using multivariate plots such as Andrews and glyph plots. Customize your plot by adding case names, least-squares lines, and reference curves.
