2D Categorized Scatterplots - Quick Tab

Graphical Analytic Techniques

Select the Quick tab of the 2D Categorized Scatterplots Startup Panel to create categorized scatterplots using a variety of system defaults. For more options, select the Advanced tab.

Layout. Choose either a Separate plot layout (where each subset of cases is displayed in a separate small graph) or an Overlaid plot layout (where all subsets are overlaid in one graph and identified only by patterns and colors) for the categorized scatterplots.

Note that similar to the option Marking Selected Subsets in 2D Scatterplots, overlaid Categorized Scatterplots automatically mark the points in each overlaid plot differently (i.e., each plot is represented in the same manner as multiple subsets that are based on categorization options).

Variables. Click the Variables button to display a standard variable selection dialog box, in which you can select the X and (optional) Y grouping variables and the variable(s) to be displayed in the scatterplots. The selections made will be displayed below the Variables button.

Note that the selected grouping variables do not have to be categorical variables (e.g., contain codes); you can use one of the methods of categorization to categorize continuous variables. The selection of grouping variables is not necessary if the categories are defined via the Multiple Subsets method.

Fit type. Depending on the type of fit already specified on the Advanced tab, you can select or clear one type of fit to use in your scatterplots. For more on fit types, see the Advanced tab.
