Reality check The data presentation is an art based on science. In general, raw data are difficult to understand and present. Therefore, information from data is appropriately summarized and presented in texts and tables. The tables emphasize individual and precise values. Further, these are important and integral components of scientific research. A young trainee has been asked to prepare dummy tables by the mentor. The trainee has a general idea about the tables, but did not hear about the dummy tables. Therefore, the trainee wants to know the answers to a few questions before proceeding ahead with the assigned task. • What are the components of the table? • What are the characteristics of a good table? • What are dummy tables? • What are the advantages of dummy tables?
