There are many of those. One of those is even integrated into Inkscape (Export -> Plot...).

There are extensions for function plotter and parametric curves.

If you have a simple dataset:
If your data are (ordered) x,y couples you just have to write

<path style="fill:none;stroke:#000000;" d="M %yourdata%" />

in a text file named foo.svg and voila (minus the scaling but you can do it in inkscape)
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info!
