The ribbon chart has nothing to do with the report, which is here: http://bivv.be/frontend/files/userfiles/files/motac-factsheet-en-2013.pdf

Now, this report. It itself a goldmine of bad charts, quite educational.


My assumption after reading the summary is that they wanted to look at 200 accidents, and they were able to find 168 from 2010, and then took the other 32 from 2009.

As for the chart, it appears to be a generic illustration for "statistics". It is just as bad an illustration as it would be a chart though...


Well, it obviously says that if you got an F in statistics, then you had more accidents!
