Fun #dataviz trivia: When judging whether a data point is part of a bar plot’s distribution, people judge points that fall within the bar as being more likely than points outside of it. It’s as if we think the bar somehow “contains” the data. https://t.co/tWuVnJyLQM
I’m working on a spare time project called ‘open-visualizations’ to make all sorts of figures based on #openscience best practices (i.e. no ‘hidden-data’) Example: https://t.co/0mkvHALDDg Let me know if you have awesome code/plots to share or if you’re eager to contribute! https://t.co/zzmHc8XQO8
Also, how about you use a better plot than a bar graph in the first place? #barbarplots
"Averages lie" is a great saying. @ole_b_peters brings fascinating perspective on that notion in arguing for errors in basic mainstream economic theory at https://t.co/6kcx7fzzGA (or for those more mathematically capable than I, https://t.co/rYszvvuLYW) Thanks and h/t @wolfejosh!
