What do you call a graph of value vs rank of the value?
For example, say I make a census of the 2010 net income for a bunch of people.
- The graph of net income vs age gives me a: scatterplot
- The graph of net income vs location (latitude, longitude) gives me a: height map
- After sorting the net income values so the value in rank 1 is highest income, rank 2 is the next-highest, etc., then the graph of net income vs rank gives me a: ???
My understanding is that Zipf's law often applies to such graphs. Ideally I'd like a name for all such graphs, whether or not Zipf's law applies to them. What do you call such a graph of value vs rank of the value?
