st: RE: RE: uses of Bland-Altman plots
More generally, Bland-Altman plots are just
special case of residual vs fitted plots,
an idea with even longer roots. So after
an appropriate -regress-, -rvfplot- is
yet another way to do it.
Other discussions of this area have appeared in
2004. Graphing agreement and disagreement.
The Stata Journal 4: 329--349.
and will appear in
