The Demopaedia team will be present at the next International Population Conference in Busan.
If you attend the conference, please, come to our oral communication which will be held on Tuesday August 27, from 15:30 to 17:00 (Bexco, room 213). The new Korean dictionary will also be presented in a side meeting organized by the Planned Population Federation of Korea (PPFK) on "Population Issues & Official development assistance" (open to all) at 19:00 (Bexco, room 110).

Schematic  (SCHEMATIC)

Methods of graphic representation 1 or diagrammatic representation 1 may be used to illustrate the data. The data are represented in a figure 2, graph 2, statistical chart 3 or map 3. A schematic representation of the relationships between variables is often called a diagram 4, for example the Lexis Diagram (cf. 437). A graph in which one co-ordinate axis is graduated logarithmically and the other arithmetically is called a semi-logarithmic graph 5, though such graphs are often inaccurately referred to as logarithmic graphs 5. A true logarithmic graph 6 has both axes graduated logarithmically and is sometimes referred to as a double logarithmic graph 6. A frequency distribution may be represented graphically by frequency polygons 7 obtained by joining points representing class frequencies with straight lines, by a histogram 8, where class frequencies are represented by the area of a rectangle with the class interval as its base, by bar charts 9, in which the class frequencies are proportionate to the length of a bar or by an ogive 10 representing the cumulative frequency distribution.
