HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH TYPE OF GRAPH TO USE?


When to Use
a Line graph.
Line graphs are used to track changes over short and long periods of time.
When smaller changes exist, line graphs are better to use than bar graphs.
Line graphs can also be used to compare changes over the same period
of time for more than one group.
a Pie Chart.

Pie charts are best to use when you are trying to compare parts of a
whole. They do not show changes over time.

a Bar Graph.
Bar graphs are used to compare things between different
groups or to track changes over time. However, when trying to
measure change over time, bar graphs are best when the
changes are larger.
an Area Graph.
Area graphs are very similar to line graphs. They can be
used to track changes over time for one or more groups.
Area graphs are good to use when you are tracking the
changes in two or more related groups that make up one
whole category (for example public and private groups).

an X-Y Plot.
X-Y plots are used to determine relationships between the
two different things. The x-axis is used to measure one event
(or variable) and the y-axis is used to measure the other. If
both variables increase at the same time, they have a
positive relationship. If one variable decreases while the other
increases, they have a negative relationship. Sometimes the
variables don't follow any pattern and have no relationship.

Key:

Statistics
Statistics is the study of the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. It
deals with all aspects of data, including the planning of data collection in terms of the design
of surveys and experiments. Statistics is alternately described as a mathematical body of science that
pertains to the collection, analysis, interpretation or explanation, and presentation of data, or as a branch
of mathematics concerned with collecting and interpreting data. Because of its empirical roots and its
focus on applications, statistics is typically considered a distinct mathematical science rather than as a
branch of mathematics. Some tasks a statistician may involve are less mathematical; for example,
ensuring that data collection is undertaken in a way that produces valid conclusions, coding data, or
reporting results in ways comprehensible to those who must use them.

Raw data
These are the numbers that have been actually collected, measured and recorded by statisticians.
Suppose you wanted to find out if children who had cereal for breakfast tended to skip lunch than children
who had a doughnut. In the experiment, 10 children would have cereal for breakfast and 10 would have a
doughnut each. You would then note how many of them skipped lunch at 1:00 pm and how many didnt.
These numbers are your raw data.
The mean
This is the sum of all the scores divided by the total number of scores, also known as the average.

The median
This is the number that falls precisely midway in the set of numbers and is another way to describe it. You
can easily arrive at the median by arranging the numbers in order.
The mode
This is the number that occurs most frequently in a set of numbers but it does not tell us anything more
about the data.

The range
This is the difference between the highest and lowest values in the set of numbers, but, like the mode, it
does not tell anything much about the data.
The standard deviation
This is a number that tells you how closely the various scores are clustered around the mean in a set of
raw data.

KIND OF GRAPHS
A diagram displaying data; in particular one showing the relationship between two or more quantities,
measurements or indicative numbers that may or may not have a specific mathematical formula relating
them to each other. Graphs are pictures that help us understand amounts. These amounts are called
data. There are many kinds of graphs, each having special parts.

Circle Graph
A circle graph is shaped like a circle. It is divided into fractions
that look like pieces of pie, so sometimes a circle graph is
called a pie graph. Many times the fractional parts are
different colors and a key explains the colors. A pie chart (or a
circle graph) is a circular chart divided into sectors, illustrating
relative magnitudes or frequencies. In a pie chart, the arc
length of each sector and consequently its central angle and
area, is proportional to the quantity it represents.

Bar Graph
A bar graph uses bars to show data. The bars can be
vertical (up and down), or horizontal (across). The data can
be in words or numbers. Also known as bar chart is a chart
with rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values
that they represent. The bars can be horizontally oriented or
vertically oriented (also called column chart).Sometimes a
stretched graphic is used instead of a solid bar. It is a visual
display used to compare the amount or frequency of
occurrence of different characteristics of data and it is used
to compare groups of data.

Picture Graph

A picture graph uses pictures or symbols to show data. One


picture often stands for more than one vote so a key is
necessary to understand the symbols.

Histogram

A histogram is a special kind of bar graph. The data must be


shown as numbers in order. A line graph shows points plotted
on a graph. The points are then connected to form a line.
