One way to display data graphically, is the pie chart. Obtain clarity of presentation in pie charts by:
 Choose a small number (five or six) of categories for the variable because too many make the pie chart difficult to interpret.
 Whenever possible, construct the pie chart so that percentages are in either ascending or descending order.
 Choose a small number (five or six) of categories for the variable because too many make the pie chart difficult to interpret.

A second graphical technique is the bar chart:
 Label frequencies one axis and categories of the variable on the other axis.
 Construct a rectangle at each categorie of the variable with a height equal to the frequency in the category.
 Leave a space between each category to connote distinct, separate categories and to clarify the presentation.
 Label frequencies one axis and categories of the variable on the other axis.

Common shapes for relative frequency histograms:
 Unimodal: a histogram with one major peak
 Bimodal: a histogram with two major peaks
 Uniform: every interval has the same number of observations
 Symmetric: the right and the left side have essentially the same shape
 Skewed to the right: when the right side of the histogram,, containing the larger half of the observations in the data, extends a greater distance than the left side (skewed to the left vice versa).
 Unimodal: a histogram with one major peak

A time series is:
A pictorial method of presenting changes in a variable over time. Usually, the time points are labeled chronologically across the horizontal axis and the numerical values of the variable of interest are labeled along the vertical axis.
