### What is a Scatterplot?

Hey, friends! Today, we’re talking about scatterplots and how they can be used to explore data. π So, what does a scatterplot display?Β  A scatterplot displays data point pairs and the relationship between two variables. It shows how one variable changes in relation to the other variable. π For example, let’s say you’re looking at […]

### How to Use a Line Chart to Explore Variable Relationships?

Hey, friends! Today, we’re talking about line chartsΒ and how they can be used to explore associations between variables. π So, what are the benefits of using a line chart to explore the association between variables? π€ Line charts are easy to interpret and are good for exploring continuous variables with few discrete points. They show […]

### How Do You Fix Overplotting?

ππ€π Hey, friends! Today, we’re talking about overplotting. π Overplotting occurs when there are too many data points in a scatterplot, and the points overlap, making it difficult to see the overall pattern in the data. To address this issue, you can use several techniques, including adding transparency to the points, sampling the data, or […]

### What is Covariation?

Hey, guys! Today, we’re going to talk about covariation. π€ So, what is covariation? π€ Well, covariation is the tendency for values of two or more variables to change together. π For example, when you practice basketball every day, you’ll likely see an increase in your shooting percentage. That’s covariation! ππ When variables covary, we […]

### What Charts are Best for Exploring Relationships in Your Data?

Hey, friends! Today, we’re going to talk about charts that are best for exploring relationships in your data. π So, what charts should you use? π€ There are a few different charts that can help you explore relationships in your data: scatterplots, bubble charts, line charts, and heatmaps. Let’s dive into each one. π Scatterplots […]

### What is the Difference Between Independent and Dependent Variables?

Hey, guys! Today, we’re talking about the relationship between variables. π When exploring the relationship between variables, it’s important to consider how one variable might be causing the other. This is because it can help you identify possible causal relationships and make more accurate predictions about future outcomes. π For example, let’s say you’re exploring […]

### How to Use Multivariate Graphs to Explore Data?

Hey, friends! Today, we’re talking about multivariate graphs and when it’s best to use them. π Multivariate graphs are data visualizations that show the relationships between three or more variables in a dataset. These graphs can be used to explore complex data sets and identify patterns and relationships that might not be immediately apparent from […]

### How to Explore Bivariate Data?

Hey, friends! Today, we’re talking about ways to explore bivariate data and the characteristics we typically look for when exploring relationships between variables. π Common Ways to Explore Bivariate Data Two common ways to explore bivariate data are correlation coefficients and scatterplots. A correlation coefficient is a statistical measure of the strength and direction of […]

### How to Use a Scatterplot to Explore Variable Relationships?

Hey, guys! Today, we’re talking about scatterplots and how to interpret them. π How Do You Interpret the Type of Association Between Variables in a Scatterplot?Β  A scatterplot is a graph that shows the relationship between two variables. The type of association between the variables can be positive, negative, linear, non-linear, strong, or weak. π […]

### How to Use a Heatmap to Explore Data?

Hey, guys! Today, we’re talking about heatmaps and how to read them. π How Do You Read a Heatmap? A heatmap is a graphical representation of data where the values in a matrix are represented as colors. π₯ The darker the color, the higher the value, and the lighter the color, the lower the value.
