You can customize this Scatter Chart / XY Scatter Plot for any report where you need to;

visualize and analyze data concentration in each segment, its correlation with corresponding variable and show segment averages.

Key Features

Percentages for each segment are derived from absolute values using formulas and they are auto placed in respective segments.

  • Pre-built data setup with comments, so that you don’t have to spend time figuring out how to setup data correctly.
  • Uncluttered charts with professional formatting and styles that automatically adopt to your data, so that you don’t have to find, learn and fine tune tens of hidden settings.
  • Out-of-box single/dual axis charts for numeric, percentage and currency data, with pre-placed data labels, legends and offbeat markers for engaging presentations.
  • Fully functional data chart with real world data.


The XY Scatter Plot in above example presents an analysis of 100 bestseller books on Amazon to establish and quantify trends and correlations between number of pages, price and average price.

The 100 dots in this chart represent 100 books. On the X-axis are number of pages segregated in segments of 1 – 100 pages, 101 – 200 pages, 201 – 300 pages and so on. On the Y-axis is price of books. Each X – Y intersection point represents number of pages and price of the book.

From the chart, we can see that about 50% of the 100 bestseller books have 200 to 400 pages.

Books that have 300 to 400 pages command 34% higher average price over books that have 200 to 300 pages. However, the average price increase is just about 6% when we move to 400 to 500 page segment.
