Scatterplot refers to a visual representation of the relationship between two (2) variables. The scatterplot consists of an X-axis (labeled to reflect one variable), a Y-axis (labele d to reflect the other variable), and a number of data points, each corresponding to one person's scores on both variables. Scatterplot is a means of graphing data points in which the position of each point is determined by its value corresponding to the variables on each axis.

Scatterplot is also spelled Scatter Plot.
