The March caption contest cartoon is shown here. The judges found the winning caption to be “Good graphs give food for thought,” written by Larry Lesser at The University of Texas at El Paso. Larry’s caption can be used in discussing how data visualizations help in thinking about the interpretation of data and stimulate critical thinking about the topic of the plot. Honorable mentions this month go to Laila Poisson from Henry Ford Health for her caption:“Celebrating the art of statistics,” and to Charlie Smith from North Carolina State University for his caption: “Data visualization opens the door to understanding your data, and it’s cool!” Both of these captions can be used to stimulate a general appreciation for statistical graphics.
Thanks to everyone who submitted a caption and congratulations to our winners!
