Visualization of Baylor Religion Survey (Wave 5)

Baylor Religion Survey

This exploratory visualization is designed to compare relationships between any two variables from the Baylor Religion Survey. (At the moment, the only available questions are single multiple-choice questions and not multi-question grids.) The visualization, created using Tableau Desktop, is password protected.

There is a dropdown menu each for the X-AXIS and Y-AXIS with packed bubbles showing frequency of the ordinal values within each selected axis parameter. Below, there is a scatter plot for the selected x- and y-axis and a regression line. Mouse over the regression line to view the linear equation, p-value, and r-squared. There is also a Control For... dropdown for categorical variables. Selecting a Control will enable the pie chart to show relative responses and will divide the scatter plot into each unique response. The two packed bubbles and the pie chart also act as a filter and can be used to filter all other visualization objects.
