Communicating information learned from data is often most effectively done by creating visual representations of the findings. In this group assignment, you will work with your collaborative group to create bars and graphs based on public health data.
The objective of this assignment is to help each other learn and reinforce this crucial skill set used in data analysis.
Each member of the group should work on the following:
- Locate datasets available from the CDC, NIH, or another public source.
- Use Microsoft Excel® to create bar charts and side-by-side bar graphs of your datasets.
- In the discussion area for your group, post your charts and graphs and provide a brief explanation of your analysis and any tips you can share about your process for creating the visualizations that other members of your group can benefit from.
