Presentation of Covid-19 data

 

A chara, – Coronavirus data in your newspaper’s tables and charts divides the population from five to 65 years of age into 10-year age gaps. All those over 65, a potential 40 years, or two generations, are grouped together as a single cohort. A more informative and inclusive presentation of data would continue the sequence with groups of 65-74, 75-84, 85-94 and over 95. – Is mise,
