After tackling the problems of gathering a batch of observations according to some systematic plan, the scientist faces the problem Eve brought Adam—the troubling fact of choice. What treatments should be applied to the data, arithmetically or graphically? Why these treatments rather than some others? What principles can aid in making the choices? How can we organize our thinking about the overall process of data analysis?
