Relationships between state indicators


The visualization below creates a scatterplot showing the relationship between two variables in the State Indicators Database. Select both variables using the drop-down menus (one for the horizontal [x] axis and one for the vertical [y] axis). All data are for 2017.

The red circles that appear in the plot are states (you can identify them by pointing to them). The line in the scatterplot is a “best fit” line, and it represents the average relationship between the two variables you select.
