2.5 Scatter Graphs
In today’s lesson, I will teach you about Scatter Graphs. Scatter graphs, also known as scatter charts or scatter plots, are used when you want to show correlation between sets of data. Let’s learn to make them effective and meaningful to our readers.
- If you have a dependent variable, put it on the Y axis.
- Check your data: Look for outliers. Is this a mistake or an anomaly?
- If you have many data sets, consider using a matrix.
- Don’t use different symbols for different sets of data: If you have more than one set of data, differentiate the sets by color.
