Top Ten Largest Cities in The United States
Have you ever wondered what the top ten largest cities are? Well if you have you will be able to find out if you just keep reading. I chose my topic because I thought it would be interesting to see the top ten largest cities in the United States and how many people are in these cities. I thought other people might want to see the top ten largest cities in the United States.
The purpose of this graph is to show people the bigger cities in the United States. So if you want to live in a larger city you might want to live in New York, New York, , Los Angeles, California, or Chicago, Illinois. People who will benefit by my graph are people who are looking to build a business. They would want to build a business in a larger city like New York, New York because they could make more money. A bad thing about living in a larger city is all of the pollution. My graph could be published in the American News or another news paper so if you are looking to build a business, you have the largest cities in your hand.
The specific source I used was http://www.worldalmancforkids.com/explorer/population3.htm#largest-us.
The graph I chose was a bar graph because I only had ten numbers and I think a bar graph completes my graph the best. A line graph wouldn’t really go with my graph, a pie graph I have to much information for, and a stem and leaf plot I don’t think would go very well with my graph because my numbers are to large.
The range for my graph is 7,000,000 which means I have a wide range, I do not have a mode, and my median is 4 and ˝ ,000,000 and it means that the number is closer to the bottom of my graph. The calculations for my graph are there are some pretty large cities in the United States.
My predictions for this graph are that these cities will continue to get larger and larger. I think this graph will be posted in someone’s office so that they can see where they want to build a business, and maybe in a newspaper so that other people can see the top ten cities in the United States.
