Let's Ponder (Discussion 2): Is the Change really Significant?

In the annual Town Council report, it reported the effort put in to improve the environment of the residents in the area it was in-charge of.

One aspect is the collection of refuse, which was a feedback by the residents.
The diagram shows the reported non-collections of refuse as a percentage of the total number of households in a town


Study the above diagram carefully.

1. Do you agree that the Town Council has made significant improvement? Why?

2. With reference to the visual representation, point out at least 2 areas that need improvement.
- Why do you think these 2 areas require improvement
- Suggest how to improve the representation.

  1. The time of each records are at not consistent interval. To make things worse, the data is in decimal-ed %?????

    There is no accurate point, if the dustbins are like bars, the line should be laying in a parallel line right on the or next to the lid

    The data is collected at different months, and the data somehow ends up in a straight line.

  4. I do not agree that the town council made significant improvement.The results shows that the percentage is decreasing only by 0.1%.
    The accuracy of the line and the months stated.The line is not very accurate,does not get a accurate results.The months are not consistent.The chart can be replaced with a bar graph.The months can be consistent.
