Psychology -> Research methods in psychology: scatter diagram

Scatter diagram

ANIMATION


A scatter diagram is the graphic technique used to represent the relationship between two variables. The scores of one set of data are plotted on the X axis and the scores of the other set of data are plotted on the Y axis. The dots are then observed to see if they cluster in a particular way. If the dots seem to be dispersed everywhere and the correlation coefficient is zero, then there is no relationship between the two variables. This is referred to as a zero correlation, where the change in one variable has no effect on the other variable, e.g. hair colour and sporting ability.
