Presentation on theme: "The main source of collection of data in the medial field:"— Presentation transcript:
1 The main source of collection of data in the medial field: Presentation of dataThe main source of collection of data in the medial field:ExperimentsData from Physiology, Pharmacolgy and clinical pathology lab, hospital ward, fundamental research etcSurveysData of incidence/prevalence of health or disease situation in a community such as incidence of malaria or prevalence of leprosy etcRecordsRecords are maintained as a routine in register or books over along period of time for still birth, death etc. Data are collected from these records.
2 In the presentation of data some important points should be kept in mind : They should be accurate and completeWhen we make them concise they should not lose their details.They should be simple and meaningful and at the same time they should create interest in the reader.Below the table or picture, few points of explanation may be needed most of the times.They should be helpful in further analysis.
3 Methods of presentation of data Tabulation of dataDiagrammatic presentation
4 Objectives of tabulation: Tabulation of dataA statistical table is a systematic organisation of data in columns and rows in accordance with some characteristics. Tabulation is the process of presenting data in tables.Objectives of tabulation:To clarify the object of investigation.To simplify complex data.To facilitate comparison
5 Rules for Tabulation of data Construction of a good statistical table is a specialized art and requires great skill, experience and common sense.The table should be simple and compactAll title, subtitle, caption etc should be arrange in a systemic manner.The unit of measurement should be clearly defined in the table.A table should be complete and self-explanatory.A table should be attractive to draw attention of readers.Accurate statistical analysis should be done.Abbreviation should be avoidedBig table should be avoided.

Unpaired t-test was done as the test of significance. *p<0.05, **p<0.01.

9 Graphical presentation of data A diagram is a visual form for presentation of data. Complicated data through a diagram or graph can easily be understood. It is convincing to the eye and mind.Importance of diagrams:They are attractive and impressive.They save time and labour to understandThey make data simple.They make comparison easyThey provide more information than table
10 Types of diagramLine diagram.bar diagram (simple & multiple)Pie diagramHistogramScatter
11 Graphical presentation of data Limitations of diagrams:Diagram shows only approximate value.They can not be analysed furtherAll details can not be presented diagrammatically.To draw a table is easy but construction of a diagram is not so easy.If there is wide gap between 2 different measurements, the diagram will not give a meaningful look. eg., 10 and 900 can not be shown in a diagram.
