Table

Tabular method is the most fundamental way of representing data. In fact, most of the different kinds of data presentation formats like the bar charts, line charts etc. originate from the table. In other words, presenting the data in a tabular format is the first step in forming other types of data presentation formats.
 
E.g., the table given below shows the break-up of the percentage of people of different age groups frequenting bars in 4 different metro cities viz., Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Patna in the year 2002.

The tabular format is considered to be the most versatile data presentation method. All data which can be expressed in any other format can also be expressed in the format of a table. On the other hand, it is quite possible that data that can be presented in a tabular format, cannot be presented in any other format like the pie chart
etc.
