DEFINITION

What is a bivariate map?

A bivariate map is a type of thematic map that displays two variables by using different colors and/or symbols. The variables in a bivariate map can be on the same layer or separate layers.

This bivariate map uses color and size on the same layer to show the number of rental units and median rent in different Census tracts. The size of the dots indicates the number of rental units and the color indicates the rent.
