Example of Group By Using Density Ellipses

This example uses the Hot Dogs.jmp sample data table. The Type column identifies three different types of hot dogs: beef, meat, or poultry. You want to group the three types of hot dogs according to their cost variables.

1. Select Help > Sample Data Library and open Hot Dogs.jmp.

2. Select Analyze > Fit Y by X.

3. Select $/oz and click Y, Response.

4. Select $/lb Protein and click X, Factor.

5. Click OK.

6. Click the red triangle next to Bivariate Fit of $/oz By $/lb Protein and select Group By.

7. From the list, select Type.

8. Click OK.

If you look at the Group By option again, you see it has a check mark next to it.

9. Click the red triangle next to Bivariate Fit of $/oz By $/lb Protein and select Density Ellipse > 0.90.

To color the points according to Type, proceed as follows:

10. Right-click the scatterplot and select Row Legend.

11. Select Type in the column list and click OK.
