Scatter Plot

A scatter plot shows the scores of objects on one variable plotted against the scores of another variable. Scatter plots give you a quick overview of the relationship between variables. They can be plotted either in all combinations at once (for a small number of variables), or by successively stepping through all possible combinations. The following  shows a data matrix with four variables; two of them being independent of each other, all other variables exhibiting some kind of relationship.

You may use theto create any kind of scatter plots (use the plot option "Col/Col" and select the variables to be displayed by using the eye dropper buttons in the plot windows).
