It is unfortunately true that statisticians seldom apply the tools of their own trade t.o the analysis of simulation experiments. This refers to the experimental design for the input, and the data presentation and summary and analysis for the output. A graphical test bed in which the output. of a simulation experiment can be reported and analyzed is described. From the graphics and the associated numerics the experimenter can summarize and see simultaneously relative properties-such as bias, normality and spread-of several estimators of a characteristic of the population for up to sixteen sample sizes. The evolution of these properties with sample size is also displayed and analyzed using regression and asymptotic expansions. The graphics is supported on a line printer to make it. and the program portable. The use of the program is illustrated by a study of estimates of serial correlation in normal time series.
