Plot of Means Tool

The Plot of Means tool takes a numeric or binary categorical field (with the binary categorical field converted into a set of zero and one values) as a response field along with a categorical field and plots the mean of the response field for each of the categories (levels) of the categorical field. In addition, error bars, based on the standard error, standard deviation, or a confidence interval for each mean can be placed on the plot. The tool is an excellent choice for visualizing the effect of a possible categorical predictor field on a numerical or binary target field in the process of developing predictive models.

This tool uses the R programming language. Go to Options > Download Predictive Tools to install R and the packages used by the R Tool.
