Chart was misleading

By The Madison County Record | Sep 30, 2004

I was disappointed when I saw how you presented the chart called "Illinois Doctors Pay More" in which you compared a number of states in the Midwest who had malpractice caps with Illinois. 

Despite the small asterisk by Illinois and the small explanation, I thought it was misleading in that it only included four counties in Illinois. 

An accurate presentation would have included all counties in Illinois in order to be a fair comparison with the other states.  I hope to see a new chart in an upcoming edition of the paper.

Other than this instance, I think that your reporting has been objective and well presented.  Keep up the good work.
