Gary King is, as some here know better than I do, a very energetic, talented and productive political scientist at Harvard. I believe he used Gauss at the time referred to. Latterly he seems enamoured of R. Let a thousand flowers bloom! However, many of his students and former students use Stata, and (last I looked) he was very generously publicising my -triplot- as a way to do these plots. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Clive Nicholas Further afield, Gary King and his colleagues did use Stata (via their -clarify- routine, since abandoned) to illuminate the value of electoral triangles (or 'ternary plots' as they called them) by building upon a previous study of the 1988 Mexican presidential election. Using survey data, they ran 100 multinomial-logit simulations (why not 1000?) to estimate the effect of perceived strength of the PRI party on the probabilities of each of the three main candidates winning that election. They don't go into much detail, but the results they do show are quite absorbing (King et al, 2000: 357-8).
