scatter diagram

a graphical figure in which two axes are plotted at right angles to each other, the independent variable on the x (horizontal) axis and the dependent variable on the y (vertical) axis. Each individual or object is then measured for these two variables, for example, age (x) and weight (y), and the position marked on the correct coordinates of the diagram, producing a series of scattered points. These may be given a ‘line of best fit’ by REGRESSION ANALYSIS.

It appeared that R-squared of scatter plot graph by each electrode after Pearson correlation analysis was 0.257, however s the 15 G electrode went toward CWT electrode, treat- ment area got wider.
Through MCS method, the values of joint empirical distribution functions and the corresponding mixed copula function are obtained, and, then, the scatter plot between them is drawn.
At the same time, please observe the changes that occur in the r values, paired x and y values, and data points of the scatter plot as well as the relations between them.
The scatter plot shows a slightly positive correlation between unemployment rate (x-axis) and the share of Asian-born individuals (y-axis).
They clearly do not refer to regression estimates; for they conducted no regression analysis nor do they even present a scatter plot of unemployment and price-inflation data on the figure in which they present their curve.
