Small Multiples gives a bird's-eye view of a single numeric variable over all other variables in the dataset. Small Multiples enables you to instantly understand the overall relationship between the selected variable and the other variables by showing you the relevant charts.
How to Use
To use Small Multiples, all you have to do is to just select one of the numeric variables. Then, Small Multiples will generate multiple charts of two types that reveals you the relationship between the selected variable and the others. One is a scatterplot for a numeric variable, the other is a bar chart for a categorical variable.
For instance, if you want to understand the relationship between a key metric variable, such as profit, and all other variables, simply pick profit as a y variable in Small Multiples.
If you simply want to look at the link between profit and all other factors in Texas, you can use the Record Filter feature just as below.
All simplified scatterplots that show the relationship between profit and numeric variables are located on the top,
whereas bar charts for categorical variables are located on the bottom.
From there, perhaps the relationship between profit and product category in Texas catches your attention. Then, simply move your cursor over the bar chart titled as "Category" and click the Smart Plot symbol that appears in the upper right corner of the chart.
