Make lines show different widths

How could I make likes with different widths based on a feature on a same layer? I know using "categories" it is possible to make them with different colours, is different widths also possible?

Mapping Center Answer:

Set the symbology to Categories - Unique Values and set the Value field to your size attribute. Now you can set each of the size classes to varying line widths.  If you have a quantitative variable you can use Quantities - Graduated Symbols instead.
