Trivariate Scatter Plots.
Friedman, Larry P.
Few methods have been tried and used to graphically represent more than two variables. This poster session showed a new method for representing three continuous variables on a single scatterplot using the THREEDE computer program. Two variables are represented as a normal bivariate distribution. The third variable is represented by a symbol, e.g. a circle or square, surrounding the bivariate point. The symbol size shows the relative size of the third variable. Additional symbols or different colors can be used. Methods and examples for three statistical areas are presented: (1) correlational data between three variables; (2) a TAU squared design (between-level differences of three dependent variables for an independent variable); and (3) factor loadings.
