Use a bubble visualization to show the relationships between three data sets.

A bubble visualization uses sizable plotted points—known as bubbles—to show the relationship between three data sets. The x-axis represents one data set and the y-axis represents the second data set. The size of the bubbles represents a third data set and the values of the third data set are indicated by the area of each bubble.


The following bubble visualization shows when customers of different employment status claim of their insurance policy and the total claim amount. The x-axis indicates the total amount claimed, the y-axis indicates the number of months since the policy's creation, and the size of the bubble indicates the customer's lifetime value to the insurance company.
