Connections Between Univariate Distributions

I've been enjoying Francis X. Diebold's blog, No Hesitations. The other day he had a nice post on statistical graphics, and I found myself nodding (affirmatively) as I read through it. I won't repeat his points here, save to say:
  • I, too, am a great fan of Edward Tufte. I have a couple of his booksand I used to use Minard's Napoleon chart in my introductory descriptive statistics courses.
  • I have a copy of the chart of univariate statistical distribution relationships (Leemis et al., 2008) on my office wall. I was delighted to learn, from Francis's blog, that an interactive version of this chart is available.
The interactive version is definitely worth taking a look at.
