There is no visualisation in PSPP.
That is not correct. PSPP can produce piecharts, histograms, NPplots,
Box-Wisker plots, Scree Plots, ROC Curves ...
Which programs/applications do you use to create diagrams
a) for analysis with
- nominal,
- ordinal and
- numeric (scale) data
I don't really see how one can do "analysis" with a diagram, except in a very
trivial sense
For example, a pie chart can tell you that most items are in category X. Also
an NPplot can tell
you that the data distribution is "close" to normal.
and
b) for presentation with
- nominal,
- ordinal and
FREQUENCIES /HISTOGRAM or FREQUENCIES /PIECHART
- numeric (scale) data
EXAMINE /PLOT=
Of course, the general answer to such a question is "It depends on which aspect
of the data you
which to emphasise in your presentation".
