Topic status: In progress


Graphical models are a useful way to graphically represent associations between a large number of variables, which is particularly useful for survey data. Statistical modelling of a large number of categorical variables can, practically, be a difficult task. Graphical models provide an initial, easy to see, description of possible associations that may help to inform the inferential modelling and analysis of survey data.
