What does that data look like on a linear graph? Behold:
But when we plug the data into Chartlytics, well as Emeril Lagasse would say, “Bam!”
The Standard Celeration Chart differs from a linear graph in that it shows ratio change rather than absolute amounts of change. The result of such an important characteristic is that ratio change better represents differences between data at divergent magnitudes.
A change from 1 to 2 forms a x2 change, a 100% increase. Going from 10 to 20 also has the same ratio, a x2 change or a 100% increase. Therefore, when placing data on the SCC it will evenhandedly show changes between different magnitudes. Linear charts do not.
This ends your quick fact!
