The relative heights of the rectangles visually demonstrate how the frequencies tend to drop off as we proceed from the 60—under 65 class to the 65—under 70 class and higher.

A curvilinear relationship between the variables as shown in part c of Figure 2. Bureau of the Census U. Variable number 26 5 2. Introduction and Background The Abuse of Visual Displays Remember that visuals can be designed to be either emotionally charged or purposely misleading to the unwary weires.
