Abstract.  Design plots, as defined in this article, show summaries of a response variable given the classes or distinct levels of numeric or string variables presented as influencing factors. Any summarize results can be plotted using statsby as an engine to produce summaries for groups of observations defined by classes and their cross-combinations. graph dot is used by default, but graphs may readily be recast using graph hbar or graph bar. Such plots offer scope for detailed yet concise data exploration and reporting.
