A useful way to learn about charts is to experiment with the graphing options of whatever spreadsheet and computer software package you are using. In this section, we will illustrate a few of the commonly used types of chart.

The line of reasoning in the previous paragraph suggests that a price index which weights all goods equally is not a sensible one. It also suggests how one might construct a sensible fruit price index: use a weighted average of the prices of all fruits to construct an index where the weights are chosen to reflect the importance of each good. In our fruit price index, we would want to attach more weight to bananas and apples (the common fruits) and less weight to the exotic kiwi fruit. There are many different ways of choosing such weights.

An examination of this chart indicates some support for the idea that a relationship between deforestation and population density does exist. For instance, if we look at countries with a low population density (less than 500 people per hectare, say), almost all of them have very low deforestation rates (less than 1% per year). g. over 1500 people per thousand hectares), almost all of them have high deforestation rates (more than 2% per year). e. high values of one variable tend to be associated with high values of the other; and low values tend to be associated with low values).
