Graphs in Statistical Analysis By Ajay Ohri.
From the post:
One of the seminal papers establishing the importance of data visualization (as it is now called) was the 1973 paper by F J Anscombe in http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/gerstman/StatPrimer/anscombe1973.pdf.
If you haven’t read or remember the Anscombe paper (I can’t remember which it is for me) take the time after you read this post. You will be glad you did.
