Graphing Data
Techniques for Display and Analysis



January 1995 | 164 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
How can applied researchers present and analyze their research data more effectively? By applying the techniques described in this volume, social scientists will be able to make the most efficient use of their data as well as making it more accessible. The book uses many examples to illustrate effective graphical displays of data and offers practical techniques for producing graphs. Beginning with a discussion of what has been learned from visual perception research that relates to graphing data, the book then covers: the use of graphs for summarizing data; the display of multiple units; ways to improve tabular displays; graphical alternatives to tables; two variable scatterplots as graphical support for correlation and regression; how to show variation and the summary statistics together; and how to create more effective legends and titles on a graphical display.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
