Introducing Scatter Plots
Hello readers! We hope you are doing well, and thank you for your continued support of SimplyAnalytics. We are excited to announce that scatterplots are officially live! Scatter plots are a great way to visualize the relationship between two different data variables, and we know you will enjoy them as much as we do.
Let’s take an in-depth look at this new feature.
What is a scatter plot?
A scatter plot is a graphical representation where the values of two data variables are plotted along the x and y axis. Each dot represents both the x and y values for a single location, such as a ZIP Code or county.
Why use a scatter plot?
Scatter plots enable users to identify correlations between two different variables. Let’s take a look at an example below using SimplyAnalytics where we’ll use the % of Adults (25+) with a college degree and Median Household Income to see if there’s a correlation between the variables for Counties in the USA.
