```Nick

in original paper they'd have stub3 variable continuous, which they
would slice into deciles, then compute the actual failure rates within
these deciles and show on Y-axis. that's why they call it decile plot.

in my case, stub3 is discrete, so i don't really need deciles, but
simply groups by stub3. hence, you're right there's no deciles in my
problem, but it's very similar, and i thought the solution would be
the same. i thought there would eb a standard plot called "decile
plot", which i'd plug my data into and get a nice graph

cheers
