Using gret l for Principles of Econometrics, 4th Edition

Graph the Data

To generate a graph of the food expenditure data that resembles the one in Figure 2.6 of POE,

you can use the 1= button on the gretl toolbar (third button from the right). Clicking this button brings up a dialog to plot the two variables against one another. Figure 2.4 shows this dialog where x is placed on the x-axis and y on the y-axis. The result appears in Figure 2.5. Notice that the labels applied above now appear on the axes of the graph.


Figure 2.5: XY plot of the food expenditure data

Figure 2.5 plots food expenditures on the y axis and Weekly Income on the x. Gretl, by default, also plots the fitted regression line. The benefits of assigning labels to the variables becomes more obvious. Both X - and Y-axes are informatively labeled and the graph title is changed as well. More on this later.
