THE SCATTER PLOT: Graphically Presenting Data
Know Your Scatter Plot The Scatter Plot is a useful representation of the data portrayed on the map. It consists of an X- and Y- axis, with each dot representing a county on the map. The “line of best fit,” or slope, illustrates the relationship between the two variables. Slope=11.9 means that with 1 pt increase in x, there is an 11.9 pt increase in y. The intercept represents the value of Y when X=0.
Selecting on the Scatter Plot Much like clicking and dragging on the legend, you can click and drag on the scatter plot to select specific counties.
Customize Your Scatter Plot Double-click on the variable names to access the attribute selector. This will allow you to change the X- and Y-axis variables.
