Title

Microcomputer Graphics for Statistical Analysis

Abstract

The power and availability of desktop computers have increased dramatically in the last three years. Historically, sociological research has been tied closely to the evolution of mainframe computers. New developments in microcomputing are now also beginning to affect the discipline. Although objectively less powerful than mainframes, microcomputers offer a number of advantages besides size. One of these advantages is the ease, and low cost, of working interactively with analytical graphics. New graphics programs represent a significant advance over anything previously available for statistical analysis. This paper illustrates one such program, giving examples of its possible applications for sociological research.
