a graph of a correlational relationship. (650)

Also known as scattergram or scatter diagram. A two dimensional graph representing a set of bi-variate data. That is, for each element being graphed, there are two separate pieces of data. For example, the height and weight of a group of 10 teenagers would result in a scatter plot of 10 separate points on the graph.

a graphic display used to illustrate degree of correlation between two variables.

a two- or three-dimensional plot showing the joint variation of two (or three) variables from a group of observations. The coordinates of each point in the plot correspond to the data values for a single observation.

a graph using a pair of x,y axes to represent bivariate data, each bivariate element being plotted at a position that represents its pair of values; often accompanied by a least squares line fitted to the data.

a graph using a pair of x-y axes to represent bivariate data, each bivariate element being plotted at a position that represents its pair of values; often accompanied by a line of best fit for the data.

a bivariate graph that shows the paired values of two variables being correlated

a generalization of the run sequence plot

a graph in which you record various points of data in order to find a relation or line of best fit (trendline)

a graph used to determine whether there is a relationship between

an essential complement to examining the relationship between the two variables

a plot of the values of Y versus

a simple graph that shows the relationship between two variables by showing a point for each case on a two-dimensional graph (in this situation, each case is a state or the District of Columbia)

a simple plot of one variable against another

a two- or three-dimensional plot that shows the joint variation of two (or three) data items

a useful way of representing the relationship between the variables

A graphical representation consisting of ordered pairs possibly showing a relationship between two variable quantities.

Two sets of data plotted as ordered pairs in the coordinate plane.

Also called a scatter diagram or crossplot. Shows a two-variable frequency distribution by plotting a dot or symbol at each data point. Sometimes a line or curve is added to show the correlation (if there is one) between the variables represented on the two axes.

A graph of pairs of values.

a graph of points ( x, y), one for each item being measured, on a coordinate plane. The two coordinates of a point represent their observed, paired values. For example, the ordered pairs may relate temperature to time of day.

a graph of data points, usually from an experiment, that is used to observe the relationship between two values.

A graphical plot used in studying the relationship between two numerical variables; if the relationship between the variables is linear, the points will lie on a line

The plotting of scientific data with two variables.

A graph depicting the relationship between two interval- or ratio-scale variables, with each axis representing one variable; often used to graph correlation data.

A graphic which shows data where one variable has been plotted against a second variable. Scatterplots are used when investigating correlation between two variables.
