There are PP plots and QQ plots. I've tried PP plots and didn't get much from them. The normal QQ plot [qqnorm, in R], however, I use for all kinds of things. In a data mining situation, I'll get, e.g., 500 p.values, all uniformily distributed under the null hypothesis. I'll transform that null distribution to N(0, 1) with qnorm(p.values) and make
I may be chastised severely by Tukeyites for "datax=TRUE", but the human eye can decode a 45 degree angle easier than any other angle other than horizontal or vertical. If you have a couple of mild outliers with a typical aspect ratio of the plot, the "datax=TRUE" option will make the line moderately close to 45 degrees.
