Graphical Presentation for Data on a Single Variable

Module Overview

A data set is a listing of variables and their observed values on individuals or objects of study. In this topic we will learn about how to organize data on a single variable using frequency distributions which form the basis for constructing charts including Pie Charts, Bar Charts and Histograms. We also explore Stemplot. It is important to note that the type of chart to be used depends on the type of data/variable to be represented.

  • Given a data set be able to construct a frequency table, find and interpret relative frequency of a value, find and interpret cumulative frequency.
  • For categorical data make and interpret a Pie chart and a Bar Chart. Further know when to construct each type of chart, their relative advantages and limitations.
  • For quantitative data be able to make and interpret Stemplot, Histogram, Frequency Polygon, Ogive, Time Series Graph. Further know when to construct each type of chart, their relative advantages and limitations.
