The present study proposes using Mosaic displays to depict results of Configural Frequency Analysis (CFA). The Mosaic display is a graphical method to examine multiway cross-tabulated data. Its unique strength as a graphical tool for CFA lies in its capability to show more than one dimension of the data in a way that instant comparisons of proportions can be made without much effort. Mosaic displays allow one to illustrate not only cell frequencies but also patterns of types/antitypes in CFA. In the present study, we compare Mosaic displays using real data examples to existing graphical methods that examine cell frequencies or test statistics of types and antitypes.
