Graphical methods for quantitative data are well-developed and widely used, but comparable methods for categorical data (contingency tables, discrete response data) were neither. Visualizing Categorical Data was written to extend the full range of statistical graphics to such data. Many real applications are described and illustrated.

Companion web page for Discrete Data Analysis with R

This book provides an accessible introduction to the major methods of categorical data analysis for data exploration, statistical testing and statistical models. As opposed to more theoretical books, the goal here is to help the reader to translate theory into practical application, by providing skills and software tools for carrying out these methods.
