$Barry Gibb came fourth in a Barry Gibb look alike contest$

Every day a little death, in the parlour, in the bed. In the lips and in the eyes. In the curtains in the silver, in the buttons, in the bread, in the murmurs, in the gestures, in the pauses, in the sighs. – Sondheim The most horrible sound in the world is that of a […] The post Barry Gibb came fourth in a Barry Gibb look alike contest appeared…

## The diffogram and other graphs for multiple comparisons of means

October 18, 2017
By

In a previous article, I discussed the lines plot for multiple comparisons of means. Another graph that is frequently used for multiple comparisons is the diffogram, which indicates whether the pairwise differences between means of groups are statistically significant. This article discusses how to interpret a diffogram. Two related plots [...] The post The diffogram and other graphs for multiple comparisons of means appeared first on The DO Loop.

## Graphs for multiple comparisons of means: The lines plot

October 16, 2017
By

Last week Warren Kuhfeld wrote about a graph called the "lines plot" that is produced by SAS/STAT procedures in SAS 9.4M5. (Notice that the "lines plot" has an 's'; it is not a line plot!) The lines plot is produced as part of an analysis that performs multiple comparisons of [...] The post Graphs for multiple comparisons of means: The lines plot appeared first on The DO Loop.

## Simulate correlations by using the Wishart distribution

October 11, 2017
By

The article "Fisher's transformation of the correlation coefficient" featured a Monte Carlo simulation that generated sample correlations from bivariate normal data. The simulation used three steps: Simulate B samples of size N from a bivariate normal distribution with correlation ρ. Use PROC CORR to compute the sample correlation matrix for [...] The post Simulate correlations by using the Wishart distribution appeared first on The DO Loop.

## Order correlations by magnitude

October 9, 2017
By

Correlations between variables are typically displayed in a matrix. Because the correlation matrix is determined by the order of the variables, it is difficult to find the largest and smallest correlations, which is why analysts sometimes use colors to visualize the correlation matrix. Another visualization option is the pairwise correlation [...] The post Order correlations by magnitude appeared first on The DO Loop.

## Create and interpret a weighted histogram

October 4, 2017
By

If you perform a weighted statistical analysis, it can be useful to produce a statistical graph that also incorporates the weights. This article shows how to construct and interpret a weighted histogram in SAS. How to construct a weighted histogram Before constructing a weighted histogram, let's review the construction of [...] The post Create and interpret a weighted histogram appeared first on The DO Loop.

## How to understand weight variables in statistical analyses

October 2, 2017
By

How can you specify weights for a statistical analysis? Hmmm, that's a "weighty" question! Many people on discussion forums ask "What is a weight variable?" and "How do you choose a weight for each observation?" This article gives a brief overview of weight variables in statistics and includes examples of [...] The post How to understand weight variables in statistical analyses appeared first on The DO Loop.
