If this is NOT okay, I apologize in advance, but I don't really go to any other websites where I can ask for help, and nobody in my personal life has
I am taking a statistics in psychology class, and one of my problems this week is to find an example in a newspaper or magazine (online ok) of a graph
that misleads by failing to use equal interval sizes or by exaggerating proportions.
I've browsed and browsed and browsed. The graphs/charts I've found don't seem to be misleading, but maybe I need to dig more on places like fox
news, or yahoo news. I'm not asking anyone to find the answer for me! Maybe you can give me some idea of search term combinations or something
like that that would guide me in the right direction? Or maybe you have some advice for a specific website that might be notorious for
presenting misleading research?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and again, sorry if this is any kind of T&C violation.
