A scatter graph shows the joint distribution of observed values of two variables. Each pair of values is shown as a point on X-Y plane with coordinates (Xi,Yi), where Xi and Yi are the values of the first and the second variable. Scatter graphs help draw attention to various types of correlation between two variables.
