This leads to the same scatterplot but has the advantage that a data argument can be specified. Hence we can avoid attaching and detaching the data frame: R> plot(log(subs) ~ log(citeprice), data = Journals) Graphical parameters All this looks deceptively simple, but the result can be modified in numerous ways.

Comment on the result. Be sure to try out some arguments to density(), in particular the plug-in bandwidth bw. 4. Consider the CPS1988 data, taken from Bierens and Ginther (2001). ) (a) Obtain scatterplots of the logarithm of the real wage (wage) versus experience and versus education.
