Consider how different distributions might affect the different graphs. How might other variables affect the graphs? How could graphs be made to be biased? If a graph were biased, how might you change it to guard against that bias? here is the follow up post to base this discussion off of: For each data set I would organize by using a frequency table. This will provide a structured approach to creating the graphs and help ensure no data is lost or overlooked because of a mess of values. For the first set of data I would use a bar graph. I would categorize the data by body part injured. These categories justify the use of a bar graph. “…bar graphs are constructed to provide a visual display of the counts of nominal or ordinal data.” (Humphrey, et al, 2020) The y-axis would represent the number of patients and the x-axis would list the injuries. For the second set of data I would use a histogram graph. This data set is dealing strictly with numbers. “Histogram Graph: Graph best used with quantitative, usually continuous data.” (Chamberlain, 2020) I would interview each patient to determine the amount of time spent in the waiting room. The y-axis would represent the number of patients and the x-axis would have the time spent in the waiting room. I would display the time in 5-minute intervals. Humphrey, P., Taylor, S., & Cage, K.
