The purpose of this lab was to indicate what each method of classification changed and which would be most appropriate for this specific occasion. The first two are poor classification methods for this instance since a majority of the counties fall into one category, this is due to the classifications place most into the lower categories. The bottom two are far better at conveying the information to the reader since there are more differences between counties. Most of these are placed into the higher categories thanks to these classifications. Quantile works best for this situation since more counties are represented in a more accurate and small range. Equal interval is the worst since most counties fall into the first category and not all categories are even used.
