  • Symbol possible vote.svg After the section on bar graphs, the article is completely lacking inline sourcing. Each of these sections could probably use some prose expansion and explanation as well, they are pretty bare. Finally, the orphan box at the top should be cleared before the nomination proceeds - there must be references to misleading graphs in broader articles on graphs and statistics.

  • You might want to have another look. I think the author took care of a lot of this, if not all of it. They just didn't say so here. Maile66 (talk) 22:37, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting keep.svg Article big and new enough, all parts referenced. No Plagiarism found. Hook is present, cited, and I can believe it is in the book as stated, although I cannot confirm it. Good to do. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 03:21, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
