Dot Plot

Dot plots are used for quantitative variables. Typically used for a small set of values, a dot plot uses a dot for each unit of measurement. For the preceding undergraduate expense data, if we just wanted to compare the dollar values and were not concerned with the categories, a dot plot would look like that shown in Figure 1.
