2. Graphical Presentation Dr. Laila Mohamed Nofal Professor of Biostatistics High Institute of Public Health University of Alexandria

3. Graphical Presentation Graphical presentation is the use of a graph to show the distribution of data. Why ? • Attract the reader’s attention • A graph or diagram, provides an easily understood picture of the data. A suitable diagram is easier to grasp and leaves a more permanent impression of the main features of the data • To compare two or more distributions.

4. There are many varieties of graphs. The use of a particular type depends on: Type of data (quantitative continuous or discrete or qualitative) Type of table (simple or complex) Graphical Presentation

5. Line Graph = Trend Line • One quantitative variable & Time. • Time may be years, months, weeks, days, hours…) • No frequency distribution. • May be one or more quantitative variables bytime.

6. The Line Graph Example:

7. The Line Graph Figure (1) Crude birth rate of Country X 1997-2001

8. Figure (1) Crude birth rate of Country X 1997-2001

9. The Line Graph

10. Histogram • For quantitative continuous variables • S.F.D.T only

11. Example:

12. Example: Age in Years Figure (2): Distribution of patients by age in Hospital X, 2011

13. Frequency Polygon • Quantitative continuous variable • SFDT or Complex FDT

14. Frequency Polygon • SFDT • Points are joined by straight line

15. Frequency Polygon • Complex FDT • Points are joined by straight line

16. Distribution of a group of patients by age

17. Distribution of a group of patients by age

18. Example: Frequency Polygon

19. Figure (3): Distribution of patients by age and sex in Hospital X, 2012
