Department for redundancy department results of staff survey questionnaire

I’ve just received the following in a local newsletter.

Survey results

Figure 1: The first figure

It’s reasonably clear, so it passes the first test, but really the decimal places are redundant, as are the frequency counts. Much nicer in a bar chart, of course:


barplot(c(23.6, 24.2, 26.4, 20.2, 6.2),
    names.arg = c("Not at all", "Not entirely", "Ambivalent", "Somewhat", "Very"),
    col = heat.colors(5), ylab="%", main = "Happiness with new PDPR procedure")

Voila!
