I have many charts & graphs which represent a single topic from a diverse points of views, using various parameters.

For example, on the subject of Building a House:

  • Graph which represent the cost ($) against the time
  • Graph which represent the cost ($) against the eco-friendly level of the house
  • Graph which represent the number of rooms against the work which needs to be invested per-week in order to clean them.

and many more.

In the example, the parameters are: cost, time, eco-friendly level, number of rooms etc.

How do I define this set of graphs in a couple of words?
Is it called "statistics"? "Cross-section data"?

    In this specific case I think you can call them:'Construction estimate data'. – user66974 Sep 5 '14 at 9:03

You might refer to statistical charts, cost charts, cost graphics, etc.

The sense of chart used here is, from en.wiktionary, “A systematic non-narrative presentation of data”, which encompasses tables, diagrams, graphs, etc.

From en.wikipedia, examples of graphics include “photographs, drawings, Line Art, graphs, diagrams, typography, numbers, symbols, geometric designs, maps, engineering drawings, or other images”.

Wikipedia also indicates the term infographic is in use to refer to “graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly”.
