This course deals with various methods for effectively displaying results from statistical analyses. In particular, we will demonstrate how relationships, differences, and effects can be clearly communicated using tables and graphs of fitted values derived from statistical models. The course will start with a discussion about how to effectively display distributions and relationships. Particular emphasis will be placed on density estimation. We will also discuss general principles for designing good graphs and tables. We will then focus on how to effectively display results from generalized linear models and related methods.
