“Communicate Clearly with Better Graphs:  Beyond the Basics”


Well-designed graphs communicate more clearly and concisely than several written paragraphs.  However, we tend to use the basic default options, thereby missing opportunities for thorough understanding.  To be most effective, the first step is to determine which questions are to be answered.  (This is best done before gathering data.)  Then we can select the best graph type to achieve that purpose.  This presentation is designed to help you expand your graphical toolkit.


The graphical methods we cover will go far beyond common scatterplots, bar charts, and histograms.  We will learn to create graphs from which a viewer may explore the answers to multiple questions.




Mark Martin has over 20 years of experience in the medical device industry.  He has a master’s degree in statistics, and believes that statistical analysis is incomplete if it lacks a good picture to go with it.
