    I doubt that statisticians in general hold this form of data representation
    in high regard except in restricted sub-domains. To me it does not convey
    information that is not conveyed more intuitively by other forms of plot.

    (PS I merged these threads- despite PH having deleted one of them, as
    PH's comments on the utility of the Stem and Leaf Plot seemed worth
    preserving)
