Sample Charts or Graphs

Excerpts aren't necessarily from the first page of these research papers.

Excerpt from this paper: A caption should be underneath the graph to explain the details of the graph. The content of the paper should refer to the graph more and have the graph labeled for better use. For example, “Figure 1”, so that readers know where to turn to when the graph is referred in the context of the paper.

The graph does not support the findings in the article. Also, the article does not state these findings on the graph as much as other factors that contribute to readmissions into the hospital. The article briefly discusses this material but does not fully explain the graph. The graph was taken from a different source and used in this article; thus the information is from a different study or survey.

Excerpt from this paper: The scale of the chart was appropriate for the article and how it was presented. This article was part of a journal article and the chart had to be inserted into the article so the scale was appropriate.

Excerpt from this paper: The bars need to have all of the same category sets in order to be shown on the same graph (Bennett, Briggs, & Triola, 2009). Figure 2 can be described as multiple bar graph indicating persons with depression. The categories are age ranges of depressed individuals. The two sets of bars represent the percent of depressed people from two different poverty levels: below poverty level and at or above poverty level. Note that within the two age groups of 12-17 and 60 and older, levels of depression did not fluctuate drastically by poverty status (Pratt & Brody, 2008).
