Quantitative data consist of data that are recorded on a numerical scale. There are three common graphical methods to display data: *dot plots*, *stem-and-leaf plots*, and *histograms *(see next pages for stem-and-leaf and histograms).

**Dot Plots**

Dot plots are one of the simplest statistical plots. They are useful for highlighting clusters and gaps, as well as outliers.
