I've come up with a simple way to summarize these attributes into what I call CHART: the five keys to a great infographic. The first key is Contrast; Contrast in a design creates tension and displays a clear distinction or difference offering no ambiguity. In graphic design, Contrast can be used to draw a viewer's attention to a specific area. For example, a splash of color amidst the grayscale image, but it's equally important when displaying data. 10 wonderfully Lovecraftian Films with HPL, the Necronomicon and Cthulhu nowhere in sight If you’ve come to visit this page then it’s safe to bet that you are likely a fan of H.

Most econometricians have a nominalist-positivist view of science and models, according to which science can only deal with observable regularity patterns of a more or less lawlike kind. Only data matters and trying to (ontologically) go beyond observed data in search of underlying real factors and relations that generate the data is not admissable. All has to take place in the model of the econometric mind, since the real factors and relations according to the econometric (epistemologically based) methodology are beyond reach, since they, allegedly, are both unobservable and unmeasurable. This also means that instead of treating the model-based findings as interesting clues for digging deepeer into real structures and mechanisms, they are treated as the end points of the investigation.
