Conveying Messages With Graphs (Jean-luc Doumont)


Friday, January 19, 2018, 2:00pm to 4:00pm


Jefferson 250
Widely used in research to analyze and communicate data, graphical displays are still poorly mastered by researchers, who frequently display their data sets in a suboptimal way (and popular software does not exactly help). This lecture discusses how to select the right graph for a given data set and a given research question, how to optimize this graph to reveal the data, and finally how to phrase a useful caption. [add to calendar]
