Visualization: Relationships between state indicators
The visualization below creates a scatterplot showing the relationship between two variables in our State Indicators Database. All data are for 2020. Select two variables using the drop-down menus (one for the horizontal [x] axis and one for the vertical [y] axis). The blue circles that appear in the plot are states (you can identify them by mousing over them). The line in the scatterplot is a “best fit” line, and it represents the average relationship between the two variables you select. Note that not all variables in our state database are available in the drop-down menus.For more information on these measures, see our State Indicators Database user’s guide and our annual report. You can also download the full dataset.
