scatterplot

 [skat´er-plot]
a plot in rectangular coordinates of paired observations of two random variables, each observation plotted as one point on the graph; the scatter or clustering of points provides an indication of the strength of the relationship between the two variables.

(skat'ĕr-gram),
Graphic display of distribution of two variables in relation to each other.
[scatter + G. gramma, something written]

scattergram

[skat′ərgram′]
Etymology: ME, scateren + Gk, gramma, record
a graph representing the distribution of two variables in a sample population. One variable is plotted on the vertical axis, the second on the horizontal axis. The scores or values of each sample unit are usually represented by dots. A scattergram demonstrates the degree or tendency with which the variables occur in association with each other.

scattergram
