asked in category: General Last Updated: 10th April, 2020# What does it mean if a scatter plot has no association?

**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.

**If**there

**is no**pattern, the

**association is**zero.

Correspondingly, what is a no association?

A perfect positive **association** means that a **relationship** appears to exist between two variables, and that **relationship** is positive 100% of the time. In statistics, a perfect positive **association** is represented by the value +1.00, while a 0.00 indicates **no association**.

Likewise, does the scatter plot show a positive a negative or no association? Constructing and Reading **Scatter Plots**. A **scatter plot can show a positive relationship**, a **negative relationship**, or **no relationship**. If the points on the **scatter plot** seem to form a line that slants up from left to right, there is a **positive relationship** or **positive** correlation between the variables.

Also asked, what association does the scatter plot show?

**Scatter plots** are similar to line graphs in that they use horizontal and vertical axes to **plot** data points. However, they have a very specific purpose. **Scatter plots show** how much one variable is affected by another. The relationship between two variables is called their correlation .

What is the form of a scatter plot?

A scatterplot shows the relationship between two quantitative variables measured on the same individual. The explanatory variable is plotted on the x-axis; the response variable is plotted on the y- axis. **Form**: is the scatterplot linear, quadratic, etc.
