Discussion and Practical Application of Data Visualization Best Practices using Survey Data

April 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Discussion and Practical Application of Data Visualization Best Practices using Survey Data

The purpose of this course is to present best practices for creating graphics from survey data and provide guidance for developing a critical eye that will allow attendees to best evaluate data visualizations for quality and accuracy. This short course will demonstrate how good data visualization can be used to explore relationships in survey data, and produce visual displays that enhance project reports and presentations. At the end of the course, attendees will be able to recognize common graphical mistakes that lead to inaccuracies and less effective graphics. They will also be provided with code that will allow them to reproduce some of the graphics discussed.
