Scatterplot Assignment collects data from users in cities around the world on prices of a basket of goods and services and uses these data to determine a cost of living index. This index scales New York City as 100 and expresses the cost of living in other cities as a percentage of the New York cost. For example, in 2009, the cost of living index in Paris was 127.8, which means that it cost 27.8% more to live in Paris than New York that year. The scatterplot shows the index for 2017 plotted against the 2009 index for the 40 cities worldwide on which Numbeo collected data in both years.
