Qualitative versus qualitative

Descriptive statistics: two-way tables



colPercents, rowPercents

Plotting two categorical variables

Ex: Titanic data

Quantitative versus quantitative

Plotting two quantitative variables

Univariate displays separately


Ex: Puromycin data

Ex: attenu data

Ex: faithful data

Ex: iris data

Measuring linear association

Sample Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r)

Properties of r

Ex: iris data

Ex: attenu data

More about r

One quantitative, one qualitative

Comparison of groups

Ex: weight ~ feed, data = chickwts

Ex: ~ age | education, data = infert

Ex: ~ count | spray, data = InsectSprays

Multiple variables

Multi-way contingency tables

Mosaic plots, dot charts

Sample variance-covariance matrices

Scatterplot matrices (SPLOM)

Comparing groups: coplots

Ex: LifeCycleSavings data

Ex: Titanic data


Fundamental notions

Random experiment

Sample space

Subsets, events, empty set

Set theory review


  • union
  • intersection
  • difference
  • complement

Algebra of sets

  • identities
