Data is a collection of numbers gathered to get some information.

Data is a collection of numbers gathered to get some information.

To get the required information, all observations should be recorded.

Tally marks are used to organise the observations. Record every observation by a vertical mark, but every fifth observation should be recorded by a mark across the four earlier marks, like this:  Chapter Notes - Data Handling Class 6 Notes | EduRev.

We depict each observation with the help of tally marks.

Chapter Notes - Data Handling Class 6 Notes | EduRev

A picture that visually helps us to understand data is called a pictograph.

Bar graphs or bar diagrams are helpful in representing the data visually. In bar graphs or bar diagrams, bars of equal width are drawn horizontally or vertically with equal spacing between them. The length of each bar represents the required information. Choosing an appropriate scale for a bar graph is important. Scale means the number used to represent one unit length of a bar. For example, the scale for the bar graph shown here is 1 unit length = 100 children.
