The plot here illustrates the idea using the audit dataset. Here, we have chosen Marital to have the role as a Target variable (doing this in the Data tab). Then we have asked for a Benford plot of the Income variable, and we can see that the plot is stratified over the possible values for the Marital variable.
This could be useful when, using the accounts payable example again, we have a person signing off the invoices and another person issuing the invoices, and we wish to explore whether there are any patterns through the combination of these two. That is, the person signing off invoices might only be manipulating those invoices issued by a specific individual. Thus, re-mapping these two categoric variables into a single combined categoric variable will allow us to explore this relationship.
