Re: Are those figures for "print" or "screen"? (nt)

I disagree. For any quantity the correct approach is to compare first the actual value. Adjusted, normalised, or standardised values can be compared IF they serve a purpose, and it does not matter whether you are talking about "seasonally adjusted unemployment" or normalised SNR. The trap, as in this case, is to use normalisations that encode ideas about the right answer.
