Select an individual value plot

Choose Graph > Individual Value Plot, then select an individual value plot based on your data and how you want the plot to look.

One Y: Simple

Create an individual value plot that displays the values for one variable. The worksheet must include one column of numeric or date/time data.

For example, in the following worksheet, Elastic contains the numeric data. The graph shows the individual elastic values.

C1
Elastic
51
75
39
...

One Y: With Groups

Create an individual value plot that displays the values for different groups. The worksheet must include at least one column of numeric or date/time data and at least one column of categorical data. Groups are defined by values in the categorical variable, or by unique combinations of values in multiple categorical variables.

For example, in the following worksheet, Elastic contains the numeric data and Additive contains the categorical data. The graph shows the individual elastic values for each additive.

C1 C2
Elastic Additive
51 0
75 1
39 2
... ...

Multiple Y’s: Simple

Create an individual value plot that displays the values for different groups. The worksheet must include multiple columns of numeric or date/time data. Each column is a group.

For example, the following worksheet contains the diameters of pipes produced each week for three weeks. Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3 contain the numeric data. The graph shows the individual pipe diameters produced each week.

C1 C2 C3
Week 1 Week 2 Week 3
5.19 5.57 8.73
5.53 5.11 5.01
4.78 5.76 7.59
... ... ...

Multiple Y’s: With Groups

Create an individual value plot that displays the values of multiple-level groups. Multiple-level groups are displayed as clustered groups of symbols. The worksheet must include multiple columns of numeric or date/time data and at least one column of categorical data. Groups are defined by separate columns and by values or unique combinations of values in categorical variables.

For example, the following worksheet contains the diameters of pipes produced each week for three weeks, on two machines. Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3 contain the numeric data. Machine contains the categorical data. The graph shows the individual pipe diameters produced by each machine, clustered by week.

C1 C2 C3 C4
Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Machine
5.19 5.57 8.73 1
5.53 5.11 5.01 2
4.78 5.76 7.59 1
