## STATISTICAL LINE CHARTS

## Background

Line Charts may also display statistical values in charts known as Statistical Line Charts. These charts do not have plotted values but instead they display the range mean and standard deviation of the independent variables.

For references, visit Line Charts and More Different Types of Line Charts.

## Description

Go to the SOCR Charts and select Line Charts from the items located on the left, then select the demonstration for Statistical Line Charts:

The image above is a demonstration of a Statistical Line Chart. Notice that for each independent variable labeled, the mean and standard deviation is visually graphed. Observers are able to determine the mean and range of the specific variable of both events.

## Applications

One of the most persuasive elements when proposing data and literature to others is a well-designed chart presentation.

Suppose an experiment proposes one or more different variables, each with a range of values. By utilizing the Statistical Line Chart, graphing the mean and standard deviation for each variable may present the data set in a simple matter.

For example, students have five different brands of beverages. They want to compare the mean weight of the companies to determine if the stated weights on the cans are true or estimated. After all the data is collected, they calculate the mean and standard deviation for each beverage and graph them on a Statistical Line Chart. From this chart, observers are able to observe the statistical values of the different beverages as well as discover which brand offers the true mean weight of its beverage.
