Statistics and visual representations of data is a necessity for the true comprehension of what the data means as a whole. Data are too numerous and complex to be analyzed by the individual datum, and various visualizations of data aid in understanding the complexity and use cases for any one set of data, or multiple sets of data as compared to each other.
