**"Scattergram"**An x-y plot of consumption versus driving factor, both measured at regular intervals (typically weekly or monthly). (sample)

A graph with points plotted on a coordinate plane.

Graphic depiction of association between matched pairs of values. Each pair of observations is represented as a point where the values on the two dimensions intersect. The horizontal exist is referred to as the x-axis, and the vertical axis is called the y axis. Scattergrams are used to depict both correlation and regression. For correlation, it does not matter which variable is labeled x and which is labeled y. In regression, it doe matter. The dependent or predicted variable is always labeled y, while the independent or predictor variable is always labeled x. [See correlation coefficient, regression equation
