Regardless of which format you use, the figures should be placed in the order they are referenced in the Results section and be as clear and easy to understand as possible.
If there are multiple variables being considered (within one or more research questions), it can be a good idea to split these up into separate figures.
” The Results section should include the findings of your study and ONLY the findings of your study.
The findings include: If the scope of the study is broad or has many variables, or if the methodology used yields a wide range of different results, the author should state only those results that are most relevant to the research question stated in the Introduction section.
By writing with clarity and conciseness and by highlighting and explaining the crucial findings of your study, authors increase the impact and effectiveness of their research manuscripts.

The best way to organize your Results section is “logically.” One logical and clear method of organizing the results is to provide them alongside the research questions—within each research question, present the type of data that addresses that research question. Your research question is based on a survey: This can actually be represented as a heading within your paper, though it might be presented as a statement rather than a question: Present the results that address this specific research question first.
In this case, perhaps a table illustrating data from a survey. Other tables might include standard deviations, probability, matrices, etc.
A major purpose of the Results section is to break down the data into sentences that show its significance to the research question(s).
The Results section appears third in the section sequence in most scientific papers.
