Graphics is perhaps the most difficult topic to compare across SAS, SPSS, and R. Each package contains at least two graphical approaches, each with dozens of options and each with entire books devoted to them. Therefore, we will focus on only two main approaches in R, and we will discuss many more examples in R than in SAS or SPSS. This chapter focuses on a broad, high-level comparison of the three. The next chapter focuses on R’s traditional graphics. The one after that focuses just on the grammar of graphics approaches used in both R and SPSS.
