|Notice how the ungrouped
report is not sorted in any specific categories. It lacks order and is unprofessional. The audience of this report would likely
find it chaotic and not be convinced by the data being presented to
them. Also, instead of sorting through
the data themselves in their heads, they may just not trouble themselves and
allow the data being presented to them to remain unorganized.
|- In the grouped report, the
data is categorized according to “Major.”
Further, within those categories, the information is listed according
to salary. Even though the report on
the right, the Grouped Report, was created from the same data as the
Ungrouped Report on the left, it is much more professional and
presentable. Therefore, this Grouped
Report is not only simple, it is most effective at communicating the
information being presented.
