B) Create histograms using different class intervals. For instance, begin by letting your software package choose default values and see what you get, then try values of your own. XY-plots Economists are often interested in the nature of the relationships between two or more variables. ” all involve two or more variables. 2. They are not, however, suitable for examining relationships between pairs of variables. Once we are interested in understanding the nature of the relationships between two or more variables, it becomes harder to use a graph.

A positive correlation does not mean that every country with a high population density necessarily has a high deforestation rate, but rather, that this is the general tendency. It is possible that a few individual countries do not follow this pattern (see the discussion of outliers in Chapter 2). 3. Deforestation rates vary across countries as do population densities (this is the reason we call them “variables”). Some countries have high deforestation rates, others have low rates. This high/low cross-country variance in deforestation rates tends to “match up” with the observed high/low variance in population densities.

The concept of the mean is associated with the middle of a distribution. 80 lies somewhere in the middle of the distribution. The cross-country distribution of real GDP per capita is quite unusual, having the twin peaks property described earlier. It is more common for distributions of economic variables to have a single peak and to be bell-shaped. 4 is a histogram that plots just such a bell-shaped distribution. For such distributions, the mean is located precisely in the middle of the distribution, under the single peak.
