I have a project to do where I have to select certain data and display it as a horizontal bar graph another set of stats and display it as a histogram. I need to also explain why I have chosen the graph for the data. The stats will most prob be some official governmental data but I can choose anything. I can thing of the obvious graphs to do but I need something good.

Lots of strange graphing possibilities in MS Excel.

An interesting example might be that some French secondary schools use Radar (spider) charts to display attainment in the main suject areas for careers guidance. They set up a spreadsheet for a class with averaged marks for (say) 8 important sujects (all ex 20, French style) then display a radar chart for each student. The shape gives an indication of best performance area(s)

I don't need strange graphs, I just need ideas of data to graph - some set of data which I can explain why I used the horizontal bar graph or histogram (I need one set of data for hor. bar and another different set of data for hist.)

Well, I'm a bit rusty on when you use the different graphs, so if you explain that I'll try to help (yeah, could read stats book but that's boring)

I'll state the question again (or rather my problem). I need to know what is some good data to display in (1) a histogram (2) a horizontal bar chart and I need reasons why I chose the graph for the selected data sets
