  • Abstract:

    The height of a child is not stable but increases over time. Since the pattern of growth varies from child to child, one way to understand the general growth pattern is by using the average of several children's heights, as presented in this data set. The scatterplot of height versus age is almost a straight line, showing a linear growth pattern.

    The straightforward relationship between height and age provides a simple illustration of linear relationships, correlation, and simple regression.
