This shows a scatter diagram. The horizontal scale shows "Patient group" as two categories, labeled either "C O A D" or "Control". The vertical scale shows "Albumin (milligrammes per millimole creatinine)". This is a logarithmic scale and is numbered 1, 5, 10, 50, and 100. The pairs of points 1 and 10, 10 and 100, and 5 and 50 are each the same vertical distance apart.
There are two vertical clouds of points. The cloud for C O A D has a point at albumin = 2, then extends from albumin = 5 to albumin = 21 with two further points at albumin = 34 and 36. The cloud for Control extends from albumin = 2 to albumin = 12.
Apart from the three extreme points for C O A D, the two clouds are very similar in vertical spread.
