Poor Visual Aid

| No Comments

There are quite a few things wrong with this visual aid. First off, it is way too complicated to even try to read. There are too many different things trying to be conveyed by this graph and the color chosen are very similar to each other so it's hard to distinguish which line is which. The graph also only goes up to 50%, which is very misleading at first glance. Instead of understanding that the retirement line should read 46%, many will think it means almost 100% without a closer look. The company using this aid may want their audience to fall for that, but that in itself is simply unethical.
