   It looks to me that you have a lot of data analyses and want to use
PSTricks to plot the results. Have you considered using the R system for the
analyses? I believe that you can do the results plotting with PSTricks from
within R. (It's been a few years since I've used R so I cannot be certain.)
This might be the more pragmatic approach.
