Bethany Burgess Obesity In America Pie graphs should be diagrammed using percentage form so that the represented information adds up to 100% (or the completed circle). This doesn’t account for the entire world population. Therefore a pie graph is inappropriate for the data it’s being used to convey. It is misleading upon first glance because the “pie pieces” in the graph are not proportional to the data as well. The 200 appears to be about 1/3 of the pie should really be closer to 40% (200/516= 39%) 1. The graph includes a title that tells readers what information is being conveyed. 2. The graph also contains a key that indicates what the different segments represent. 3. The information represented is quantitative (discrete) because it is people.
