STATISTICAL LITERACY: READING TABLES OF RATES AND PERCENTAGES

This paper presents rules for determining whether an index variable in such a table is part or whole depending on whether the associated margin value is an average, a sum or a 100% sum. Tables with missing margin values – date-indexed tables, half tables and control tables – are analyzed. Recommendations are made to improve reader understanding of any table involving rates or percentages.
