1 * 2 *Mean-deviation plotsare often used for studying results of 3 *attitude surveys. A suitable PLOT scheme for such graphs is created 4 *by a sucro command 5 * 6 */DEVPLOT <data>,<type> 7 * 8 *where <type> is either VBAR or HBAR. The user may enhance the 9 *scheme afterwards according to his/her own requirements. 10 * 11 *The data of 20 variables and 300 observations from an attitude survey 12 *have been generated at random by an |EXAMPLE| sucro, which demonstrates 13 *how to make typical mean-deviation plots. 14 * 15 *....................................................................... 16 * 17 *VARS=ALL / Selecting variables 18 * 19 *Making the mean-deviation graph by the /DEVPLOT sucro: 20 *`/DEVPLOT ATTITUDE,VBAR`
