Create a simple scatterplot

Graph > Scatterplot > Simple

Complete the following steps to specify the data for your graph.

  1. In Y variables, enter one or more columns that you want to explain or predict.
  2. In X variables, for each Y variable, enter a corresponding column that might explain or predict changes in the Y variable.

By default, Minitab creates a separate graph for each pair of X and Y variables.

In this worksheet, Weight is the Y variable and Height is the X variable. The graph shows the relationship between weight and height.
