Xans chart uses a log-log plot
This is something very, very different from the original data.

It is a bit like talking about speed or acceleration. Not the same thing.


What application did Xan use to create the scatter plot?

Xan Gregg

Just noticed the question about how I made the scatter plot. I used my company's "Statistical Discovery" software, JMP. Most features shown here were automatic, though the pink lines and labels were added programmatically as annotations.
