A bubble chart is a visual representation of data objects in 3 numeric data dimensions (the X-axis data, the Y-axis data, and data represented by the bubble size). This type of chart is often used in business for comparing and visualize the relationships for example between projects or investment alternatives in various dimensions such as cost, value and risk.

Bubble charts can facilitate the understanding of social, economic, and other scientific relationships. For example, we can plot if putting a higher price on cigarettes has prevented people from smoking and decreased the lung cancer cases per capita. Overall, bubble charts are good for visualizing situations, patterns and correlations, but they can’t explain the why of the situation, and how it occurred.
