Points of View: Bar charts and box plots
Sprache des Titels:
Bar charts and box plots are omnipresent in the scientific literature. They are typically used to visualize quantities associated with a set of items. Representing the data accurately, however, requires choosing the appropriate plot according to the nature of the data and the task at hand. Bar charts are appropriate for counts, whereas box plots should be used to represent the characteristics of a distribution.
