Example text

The income variables are based on (partially) imputed measures. All information, including the partner’s income, are derived from a questionnaire answered by the responding woman only. Here, we focus on graphical displays for inspecting the relationship of these health and socioeconomic variables of heterosexual women and their partners. 2 Initial Data Analysis According to Chambers et al. (1983), “there is no statistical tool that is as powerful as a well chosen graph”. Certainly, the analysis of most (probably all) data sets should begin with an initial attempt to understand the general characteristics of the data by graphing them in some hopefully useful and informative manner.

The continuous response variable and the categorical independent variable are specified via a formula as described in Chapter 1. 2 shows such parallel boxplots, as by default produced the plot function for such data, for the mortality in ocean and non-ocean states and leads to the impression that the mortality is increased in east or west coast states compared to the rest of the country. Histograms are generally used for two purposes: counting and displaying the distribution of a variable; according to Wilkinson (1992), “they are effective for neither”.

In addition, we want to study the relationship between both monthly incomes conditional on the woman’s education. Such conditioning plots are called trellis plots and are implemented in the package lattice (Sarkar, 2009, 2008). We utilise the xyplot function from package lattice to produce a scatterplot. The formula reads as already explained with the exception that a third conditioning variable, R_edu in our case, is present. For each level of education, a separate scatterplot will be produced.
