What is 'interpreting data'?
- Data means information. So interpreting data just means working out what the information is telling you.
- Information is sometimes shown in tables, charts and graphs to make the information easier to read. It is important to read all the different parts of the table, chart or graph.
A table is used to write down a number of pieces of data about different things.
The title of the table tells us what the table is about.
The headings tell us what data is in each column.
