One important part of making official statistics is how to present the statistical information. The aim of data visualisation is to makes patterns in the data – such as changes, trends, deviations, correlations and outliers – clearer for users. It visualises the story in the figures. This report describes the potential pitfalls of using graphics and maps to present statistical data. It gives a number of guidelines for the correct presentation of statistical information, and refers to the available literature on this subject.
