Specifying a Time Variable

Maintains separate coordinates, sizes, and colors for each unique time period. The bubble plot shows these values for a single time period. For example, if the Time column contains years, the bubble plot is updated to show data by each year.

To move the time label on the plot, click and drag the label.

If data is missing within a time period, the value is linearly interpolated. If data is missing for the first or last time period, the value is not estimated, but left as missing.
