Question 4: How could the graph be improved?
What we want to see is the proportions showing each reaction:
This shows much more clearly that about 20% of the intramuscular group screamed and none of the nasal group. If we want a cumulative graph, which I donít think we do, we should start with screamed, then screamed or cried, then screamed or cried or winced, etc.:
Now the third pair of bars show the percentage who winced or worse.
