Friday's Innovation Inspiration - BUBBLE option?

2
 
I have to say that I've never heard of the Bubble option, so I looked it up on support.sas.com (my go-to place for searches on customer problems or to simply to learn something about SAS). The search led me to documentation for the statement options in SAS ODS Graphics. So, I assume the author below is talking about an option to produce a Bubble plot.
 
The explanation that support.sas.com provided for me is, "Creates a bubble plot in which two variables determine the location of the bubble centers and a third variable controls the size of the bubble." So, I checked for  two or three papers to start you on your journey:
 

 

Take a look at the papers, and then let me know if I'm on the right track or missed it altogether. Thanks!!

  1. If memory serves, I'd say you're right on target. I'm not sure bubble plots were available 25 years ago but I have seen them since and your interpretation seems quite accurate.
