Conditional Map and Plots

Conditional Map and Plots

Create and manipulate a conditional map

  1. Click on conditional plot to open the conditional plot options.
  2. Select Map View.
  3. Specify three variables, x, y, and variable 1.
    • The map displays variable 1 conditioned on the values of x and y.
    • You can manipulate the intervals of x and y.
  4. Click on the dots next to the numeric labels on the x and y axes.
  5. Move them to change the intervals that each plot cell reflects.
  6. Drag the horizontal and vertical bars that mark the boundaries of each plot to change the size of the plots.

Troubleshooting & Tips

  1. Condition a variable on East-West and North-South.
  2. Create a map with a continuous color ramp.
  3. The conditional map freezes after adding centroids.

Create and manipulate conditional plots

  1. Click on conditional plot to open the conditional plot options.
  2. Besides the map option, there are three conditional plots: Box Plot, Histogram, and Scatter Plot.
  3. For each conditional plot, you are asked to specify at least three variables, x, y, and variable 1 (plus variable 2 for the scatter plot).
  4. The plots display variable 1/ variable 2 conditioned on the values of x and y.
  5. You can manipulate the intervals of x and y:
    • Click on the dots next to the numeric labels on the x and y axes.
    • Move them to change the intervals that each plot cell reflects.
  6. Drag the horizontal and vertical bars that mark the boundaries of each plot to change the size of the plots.

Tips & Tricks

  1. The conditional scatter plot requires a sufficient number of observations in each plot (e.g., a minimum of 20) to avoid large standard errors.
  2. A flat slope in the conditional scatter plot indicates no relationship between the values of the observations in the plot.
