Kleine Theorie der Wahrnehmung statistischer Graphiken

Presentation by Ulrich Kohler (WZB) at the CO:STA Colloquium

In quantitative data analysis, the presentation of results through graphs is an important tool. However, it is not always easy to construct a graph which highlights exactly those aspects of the data which the researcher considers important. Ulrich Kohler talks about the perception of graphs, possible pitfalls, and strategies to improve data presentation (using Stata).
