Commentary on interpretation errors that are terribly difficult to avoid, involving conventional significance testing.
Ralph Lengler and Martin J. Eppler's Periodic Table of Visualization Methods is a gorgeous, ingenious, rich, and highly informative single-page display of about a hundred types of charts and diagrams for visualizing data, concepts, strategies, and more. Hovering your cursor over any "element" in this table will bring up a colorful and instructive example.
Michael Friendly of Toronto's York University presents a nice smorgasbord of visual confections. Some good lessons and also some good laughs.
A fine place to ask targeted questions on statistics or data visualization, or to browse through searchable questions, answers, and commentary.
I welcome any comments you would like to make, publicly or privately.
