A lag plot is a scatter plot for a time series and the same data lagged. With such a plot, we can check whether there is a possible correlation between CPU transistor counts this year and the previous year, for instance. The
lag_plot() pandas function in
pandas.tools.plotting can draw a lag plot. Draw a lag plot with the default lag of
1 for the CPU transistor counts, as follows:
Refer to the following plot for the end result:
The following code for the lag plot example can also be found in the
lag_plot.py file in this book's code bundle:
