## True or False

Indicate whether the following statements about scatter plots are true or false.

#### Feedback

**False**

**We could also plot means or summary statistics from a group of observations, for example the average income from different countries.**

#### Feedback

**False**

**Scatter plots are used for visualising the relationship between two numerical variables**

#### Feedback

**True**

#### Feedback

**True**

**They are very useful for checking for the consistency between observations and identifying suspicious observations.**

#### Feedback

**False**

**It takes values from -1 to +1, negative numbers indicate a negative relationship and positive numbers a positive relationship.**

#### Feedback

**False**

**It is important to realise that it only measures the strength of LINEAR association between two continuous variables. If a relationship not linear then a correlation coefficient can be misleading.**

#### Feedback

**False**

**The correlation coefficient is a dimensionless measure, it tells us nothing about the steepness of slope of a relationship in real units ie, how much Y will increase if we increase X by one unit. It only tells us about the degree of scatter around a linear line.**
