Hello,

I've been trying to bin a scatter plot in SPSS 22.

Here are the details. I have a questionnaire data set from ca. 500 participants. The scatter plot represents a correlation between the age of the participant and the motivation (evaluated on a scale from 0 to 16). Say, among my participants there are three students who all have the level of motivation 14 and they are all of the same age. Hence I have three points falling on top of each other on the plot. This creates a misrepresentation of the data. To avoid that I would like to color my points according to the count - i.e. the points corresponding to a single respondent would be colored grey, the points corresponding to two respondents - a darker shade of grey, etc.

I have found the SPSS v. 12 tutorial which explains how to do it (via the Points Bin tab in the Properties window). However, I cannot figure out how to accomplish this in the SPSS 22. The Points Bin tab is apparently no longer available.

Please help!

Nikolai
