Tables are used to summarize data about the respondents and their responses, and to present results of statistical analyses (see Sample 4.2 on page 113, and Sample Table 1 on page 129). They are typically made up of rows and columns of numbers, each marked with headings and subheadings. They can provide a more accurate and richer description than figures but they are less digestible because they lack the advantage of a visual impact. Tables are, therefore, more appropriate for articles in academic journals than for lectures to a non-specialist audience.
