Graph 1 was used to display changes in the Unemployment Rate for over 12 months.

Graph 2 was used to display pizza topping preferences based on a survey of people living in the United Kingdom.

Graph 3 was used to display the number of complaints reported for six different airlines per the US Department of Transportation in February 2013.

#### Instructions

For this discussion, you are to choose one graph and complete these steps based on the graph you chose:

#### Steps

• State the graph you chose.
• Discuss how you interpreted the graph when you first saw it.
• What did it tell you about the data represented?
• Did you find it confusing?
• Now, study the graph. Use your understanding of the topics Graphs, Pie Charts, and Bar Charts to interpret what is being presented.
• Is the information presented in a biased way (that is, is it misleading?)
• What information is being misinterpreted here? How?
• What type of graph was used, and was it used correctly?
• How could you correct the graph so that it more accurately represents the data?
• Discuss why someone might intentionally use a graph to mislead?

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.

Estimated time to complete: 2 hours

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
