Map Basics The scale bar allows you to zoom in or out. The hand tool allows you to pan and drag the map to your desired picture. The arrow tool allows you to select specific counties or groups of counties.
Selecting on the Map Using the arrow tool, click and drag to highlight specific counties.
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.
Customize Your Scatter Plot Just like the Data Table, you can choose variable categories on the left column and specific variables on the right.
