A multivariable scatterplot smoother

Royston, P.; Cox, N.J.


P. Royston


We present an extension of Sasieni, Royston, and Cox’s bivariate smoother running to the multivariable context. The software aims to provide a picture of the relation between a response variable and each of several continuous predictors simultaneously. This may be a valuable tool in exploratory data analysis, before constructing a more formal multiple regression model.
