The Effects of Display Format and Data Density on Time Spent Reading Statistics in Text, Tables, and Graphs.
Kelly, James D.
Journalism Quarterly, v70 n1 p140-49 Spr 1993
Tests the effects of number of data points and type of statistical display on time spent answering questions about information. Finds that tables and graphs are more efficiently processed than text presentation of the same data. Suggests that the time variable is a more realistic measure than information recall of cognitive processing effort. (SR)
