Abstract

From the time that John W. Tukey started to do serious work in statistics, he was interested in problems and techniques of data analysis. Some people know him best for exploratory data analysis, which he pioneered, but he also made key contributions in analysis of variance, in regression and through a wide range of applications.This paper reviews illustrative contributions in these areas.
