# Which association best describes the scatter plot?

This is Expert Verified Answer Hence, **positive linear association** best describe the scatter plot.

## What are the associations of a scatter plot?

A scatter plot **shows the association between two variables**. A scatter plot matrix shows all pairwise scatter plots for many variables. If the variables tend to increase and decrease together, the association is positive. If one variable tends to increase as the other decreases, the association is negative.

## Is it possible for a scatter plot to have a positive or negative association that is not linear?

**Yes; it is possible for a scatter plot to have a positive or negative association that is not linear**. The data points may have a falling or rising curve that will exhibit a nonlinear association.

## What are the 3 types of scatter plots?

**What are the Three Types of Scatter Plot?**

- Positive Correlation.
- Negative Correlation.
- No Correlation (None)

## What is positive and negative association?

**Two variables have a positive association when the values of one variable tend to increase as the values of the other variable increase**. • Two variables have a negative association when the values of one variable tend to decrease as the values of the other variable increase.

## What are the 4 parts of a scatter plot?

**Examining X-Y (Scatter) Plots**

- The Title. The title offers a short explanation of what is in your graph.
- The Legend. The legend tells what each point represents.
- The Source. The source explains where you found the information that is in your graph.
- Y-Axis.
- The Data.
- X-Axis.

## What are the associations between variables?

Association between two variables means **the values of one variable relate in some way to the values of the other**. It is usually measured by correlation for two continuous variables and by cross tabulation and a Chi-square test for two categorical variables.

## What are the three measures of association?

Examples of measures of association include **risk ratio (relative risk), rate ratio, odds ratio, and proportionate mortality ratio**.

## What are the 4 ways to describe a scatter plot?

Overall Pattern: To describe a scatterplot, state the direction (positive or negative), form (is it linear?), how strong the relationship appears (how large is the scatter), and identify any outliers.

## How do you identify a scatter plot?

**Scatter Diagram Procedure**

- Collect pairs of data where a relationship is suspected.
- Draw a graph with the independent variable on the horizontal axis and the dependent variable on the vertical axis.
- Look at the pattern of points to see if a relationship is obvious.
- Divide points on the graph into four quadrants.

## How do you describe data in a scatter plot?

When we look at scatterplot, we should be able to describe the association we see between the variables. **A quick description of the association in a scatterplot should always include a description of the form, direction, and strength of the association, along with the presence of any outliers**.
