About Line & Plot Charts

Line charts connect your data points by lines. Plot charts represent each data point as a dot. You can choose one of these methods to display your data, or both at the same time.

Line and Plot Charts have the same Graph Options as other general graphs. Visit the linked page for more details.

Standard Variations

Below, all standard variations of the Line and Plot Chart are listed. In the upper-right corner of each chart, you’ll see the icon that corresponds to the graph on the Graph Type menu.

Data Sources

The best variables to use in line charts have multiple data points. For example:

  • Instead of loading one scoring category at a time, select Use All Categories and just hide the categories you don’t want to display. You can add multiple data sources with this option. 
    Data sources set to Use All Categories
  • Instead of loading one Matrix Table question at a time, select Use All Choices. You can only use one data source with this option. 
    Data source set to Use All Choices
  • Use a Multiple Choice question. You can use multiple data sources with this option.

The fewer data points there are along the X Axis, the fewer data points the lines have to connect.
