Graphing Statistics & Data introduces the technique and art of producing good charts. Carefully written with many examples and illustrations, the book begins with an introduction to the building blocks of charts (axes, scales and patterns) and then describes each step involved in creating effective and easy-to-read charts.
Throughout the book, the authors use numerous examples of real data as a basis of the maps and charts. They also include a chapter that shows step-by-step how to work from the data to the finished chart. Practical textual information serves as a guide for executing each stage of preparing a chart or graph.
Sound charts do not draw attention to themselves for their own sake but make the reader aware of the qualities of statistical data. Graphing Statistics & Data enables readers to create charts that effectively present their data.
