Title: Quantitative Data Graphics: Best Practices of Designing Tables and Graphs for Use in Not-for-Profit Evaluation Reports
Author: Stabina, Ruta
Abstract: Graphical presentation of quantitative data greatly improves information perception, absorption, and retention. This literature review study analyzed 16 sources published between 1990 and 2005, addressing the three most frequently used quantitative business data presentation types: tables, graphs, and charts (Tufte, 2001) and graphics design. Results are presented in four tables, providing a set of factors for consideration by not-for-profit organization program managers when creating quantitative graphical data visualizations for use in program evaluation reports.
