Visualization: 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 2018.

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.

For more information on these measures, see our State Indicators Database user’s guide and our annual report. To convert the visualization to a PDF or graphic, use the download button at the bottom.
