You can see that there may have been data entry errors that caused the linear association here. In reality, this data set was purposefully 'dirtied' to produce examples to illustrate common problems.

Note that this graph was produced by selecting only those cases of ACPRVF and ACPRVM in the bdeshd1.sav file that had matching values and then plotting them.

You do not need to know this procedure.
