The datasets used in the book are also available here in the directory http://www.datavis.ca/sas/sssg/data/ .

- ftp BIPLOT
- Implements the biplot technique (e.g., Gabriel, 1971) for plotting multivariate observations and variables together in a single display.
- ftp BOXANNO
- Provides univariate marginal boxplot annotations for two-dimensional and three-dimensional scatterplots.
- ftp BOXPLOT
- Produces standard and notched boxplots for a single response variable with one or more grouping variables.
- ftp CONTOUR
- Plots a bivariate scatterplot with a bivariate data ellipse for one or more groups with one or more confidence coefficients.
- ftp CORRESP
- Performs correspondence analysis (also known as "dual scaling") on a table of frequencies in a two-way (or higher-way) classification. In V6+ of SAS, this analysis is also performed by PROC CORRESP.
- ftp DENSITY
- Calculates a nonparametric density estimate for histogram smoothing of a univariate data distribution. The program uses the Gaussian kernel and calculates an optimal window half-width (Silverman, 1986) if not specified by the user.
- ftp DOTPLOT
- Produces grouped and ungrouped dot charts of a single variable (Cleveland, 1984, 1985).
- ftp LOWESS
- Performs robust, locally weighted scatterplot smoothing (Cleveland, 1979).
- ftp NQPLOT
- Produces theoretical normal quantile-quantile (Q-Q) plots for single variable. Options provide a classical (mu, sigma) or robust (median, IQR) comparison line, standard error envelope, and a detrended plot.
- ftp OUTLIER
- Detects multivariate outliers. The OUTLIER macro calculates robust Mahalanobis distances by iterative multivariate trimming (Gnanadesikan & Kettenring, 1972; Gnanadesikan, 1977), and produces a chisquare Q-Q plot.
- ftp PARTIAL
- Produces partial regression residual plots. Observations with high leverage and/or large studentized residuals can be individually labeled.
- ftp SCATMAT
- Draws a scatterplot matrix for all pairs of variables. A classification variable may be used to assign the plotting symbol and/or color of each point.
- ftp STARS
- Draws a star plot of the multivariate observations in a data set. Each observation is depicted by a star-shaped figure with one ray for each variable, whose length is proportional to the size of that variable.
- ftp SYMPLOT
- Produces a variety of diagnostic plots for assessing symmetry of a data distribution and finding a power transformation to make the data more symmetric.
- ftp TWOWAY
- Performs an exploratory analysis of two-way experimental design data with one observation per cell, including Tukey's (1949) one degree of freedom test for non-additivity. Two plots may be produced: a graphical display of the fit and residuals for the additive model, and a diagnostic plot for a power transformation for removable non-additivity.
