Question description

Use a magazine, newspaper, or the Internet to research and find a situation where data have been represented by a visual aid and where you believe the visual aid is being used in a manner that evokes emotion or in a manner that misrepresents these data. Note: Some graphics may not be copied and pasted into the DB thread correctly. Please insert your graphics into a Word document and attach the Word document to your DB post so your classmates are able to see your graphics. Discuss the following:

  1. Explain in detail how you think the data are visually misrepresented or designed to evoke emotions that may cause someone to make an incorrect decision (and be sure to state which emotions).
  2. What types of visual data representations do you find most informative? What about the data representation influences your belief?
  3. What type of visual data representation do you think would best display percentage information? Why do you believe this?
  4. What type of visual data representation do you think would best represent a comparison of similar data from three different companies (e.g., net annual profit for last year)? Choose 3 companies producing similar products, find their net profits for last year, and use your choice of data representation to construct a visual data display to demonstrate your thoughts. Did this visual representation work the way you intended? Explain your answer.
