Using Graphs Instead of Tables in Political Science

When I was at APSA a few weeks ago, I was very impressed with one presenter that showed regression results in graphical form rather than the standard rows and columns of numbers.  It was a much more intuitive way to present both point estimates and the 95% confidence intervals around them, and really added to the presentation.  I suspect that eventually it will be how we present all our regression outputs.

If you want to see what I’m talking about, go to Figure 6 in this paper, called “Using Graphs Instead of Tables in Political Science” by Jonathan Kastellac and Eduardo Leoni.
