3 Presentation and visualisation of data
The visual presentation of data through comprehensible and flexible graphical tools crucially contributes to communicate messages behind statistical information at first glance. Hence, efficient communication of statistical information requires to go beyond the simple provision of statistical tables and to apply appropriate graphical tools.

This chapter presents graphical instruments widely applied in statistics. The chapter will also touch on user-friendly interactive visualization instruments that offer space for ad-hoc exploration of large data sets. Statistical Offices are increasingly making use of such flexible visualization tools.

This is part of a modern data dissemination strategy aiming at meeting the needs and expectations of the lay public.
