Visualization: Relationships between state indicators
The visualization below creates a scatterplot showing the relationship between two variables in our State Indicators Database. 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. All data are for 2019. 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.
