Graph description: Figure 5. Scatter diagram showing simulated data from a population where the two variables are exactly equal, population correlation coefficient = 1.00

A scatter diagram.

The horizontal axis is labeled "Variable X" and numbered 2, 4, 6, and 8. The vertical axis is labeled "Variable Y" and numbered 2, 4, 6, and 8. Each of the 50 observations is shown by a small diamond positioned at that subject's Variable X and Variable Y.

The points lie exactly on a straight line, rising from X = 3, Y =3, to X = 7 and Y=7.
