    1. One reason for choosing a dot plot rather than a bar chart is that it is less cluttered. We will be learning other benefits of dot plots in this and future posts.
      • Length of bar/line has no meaning in a log-scale

        A dot plot is judged by its position along an axis; in this case, the horizontal or x axis. A bar chart is judged by the length of the bar. I don’t like using lengths with logarithmic scales. That is a second reason that I prefer dot plots over bar charts for these data.
