Statistics: Module 3- Using statistical tables and figures in academic papers

This module is about telling a story with your data. It explains how to supplement the text with visuals that are informative, non-repeating and easy to understand:

Are there any data that readers might rather see as a display item rather than text?

Do your figures supplement the text and not just repeat what you have already stated?

Have you put data into a table that could easily be explained in the text such as simple statistics or P-values?
