Plotly Weekly Roundup
In a recent study, researchers gave participants information about a made-up drug. Some of the participants also saw a chart. The chart repeated information the participants had read. But showing it as a chart made it persuasive. The proportion who believed in the effectiveness of the drug rose to 97 percent from 68 percent for those who had seen the chart. The chart above is a chart about how persuasive that chart was.
The conclusion: charts are persuasive. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be publishing posts that demonstrate and examine chart types. Our goal is to help you be persuasive, effective, and clear with your data. This post shows bar, line, scatter, area, and box plots. Next time we’ll show histograms, heatmaps, and 3D plots.
