Fitting Options

The Bivariate Fit red triangle menu contains display options, fitting options, and control options.

Note: The Fit Group menu appears if you have specified multiple Y or multiple X variables. Menu options enable you to arrange reports or order them by RSquare. See Fit Group Options in Fitting Linear Models.

Show Points

Hides or shows the points in the scatterplot. A check mark indicates that points are shown.

Histogram Borders

Attaches histograms to the x- and y-axes of the scatterplot. A check mark indicates that histogram borders are turned on. See Histogram Borders.

Note: When you apply only the Hidden row state to rows in the data table, the corresponding points do not appear in the scatterplot. However, the histograms are constructed using the hidden rows. If you want to exclude rows from the construction of the histograms and from analysis results, apply the Exclude row state and select Redo > Redo Analysis from the Bivariate red triangle menu.

Summary Statistics

Shows the summary statistics for the plot, such as the correlation and confidence intervals, mean, and standard deviation.

Group By

Lets you select a classification (or grouping) variable. A separate analysis is computed for each level of the grouping variable, and regression curves or ellipses are overlaid on the scatterplot. See Group By.

See Local Data Filters in Reports, Redo Menus in Reports, and Save Script Menus in Reports in Using JMP for more information about the following options:

Local Data Filter

Shows or hides the local data filter that enables you to filter the data used in a specific report.


Contains options that enable you to repeat or relaunch the analysis. In platforms that support the feature, the Automatic Recalc option immediately reflects the changes that you make to the data table in the corresponding report window.

Save Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the report to several destinations.

Save By-Group Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the platform report for all levels of a By variable to several destinations. Available only when a By variable is specified in the launch window.
