“Don’t Count Your Eagles Before They Hatch”
Population Graphing

Note: Population surveys were not consistently done at first, so data is not always one year
apart or five years apart. Pay special attention when labeling the years on your graphs!
Remember, all good graphs have the following things:
 • A key labeling colors and symbols
 • Labels on the x-axis and y-axis
 Units when appropriate.
