In the above chart, each value in the country and marital-status columns is represented by a node that has a given color. Nominal correlation analysis is carried out to see the relationship between the number of married or single people and the country they live in. Correlations are represented by lines, the thicker the line is, the higher the association is - if the Inverse Edge Weight check box is selected.

The buttons below the chart help you manage the chart display. The following table describes these buttons and their usage:
