Description

This graphic represents the four datasets defined by Francis Anscombe for which some of the usual statistical properties (mean, variance, correlation and regression line) are the same, even though the datasets are different.

R code to create the graphic:
  svg("Anscombe's quartet 3.svg", width=11, height=8)
  op <- par(las=1, mfrow=c(2,2), mar=1.5+c(4,4,1,1), oma=c(0,0,0,0),
            lab=c(6,6,7), cex.lab=2.0, cex.axis=1.3, mgp=c(3,1,0))
  ff <- y ~ x
  for(i in 1:4) {
    ff[[2]] <- as.name(paste("y", i, sep=""))
    ff[[3]] <- as.name(paste("x", i, sep=""))
    lmi <- lm(ff, data= anscombe)
    xl <- substitute(expression(x[i]), list(i=i))  
    yl <- substitute(expression(y[i]), list(i=i))
    plot(ff, data=anscombe, col="red", pch=21, cex=2.4, bg = "orange", 
         xlim=c(3,19), ylim=c(3,13)
         , xlab=eval(xl), ylab=yl  # for version 3
        )  
    abline(lmi, col="blue")
  }
  par(op)
