Analysis: Numbers

By Justin Reis

The death toll in Port-au-Prince, Haiti continues to rise due to the cholera outbreak, reported CNN.

While the numbers in the story primarily are tailored to the death toll and the number of hospitalizations, the numbers offer accurate news and supply credible information. The story of course is not about the numbers themselves, they tell the story of the large disease outbreak.

The rule of a max of two numbers per graph is prove where there is not confusion of too many numbers or making the information weighted down by numbers.

The numbers tell the reader about the importance of the outbreak and the overall scale.
