Frank Harrell suggested this rather nice plot of multiple continuous variables. It’s part of his ‘rms’ R package which does some kind of linking to Plotly. I’ll have to look into it properly. There are mini sparkline-ish histograms on top of one another, and note the little lines under each x-axis: those show the location of whatever location & spread stats you want. The nice features are:
- easy to compare
- doesn’t hide the data
- shows the stats too
Note the chartjunk font; it would be great if someone extended this just a little to have the under-spikes as well.
