Both line and bar graphs can be used when presenting a set of data collected over a period of time. Bar graphs are plotted by drawing solid bars up to the quantity equivalent for each interval. It is very easy to recognize the high and low points of the data set when represented by a bar graph. Line graphs consist of points that represent the quantity for each interval, connected by a series of lines from one point to the next. The trending, whether increasing or descending, can be easily highlighted when the data set is represented by a line graph.
