Very interesting as an example of how flexible SAS can be. The art of the graph certainly showed up well in that one example. I wonder if those with an artistic bent better than my brain's can appreciate that example and more readily read the data represented. I personally like "simpler the better" for my taste though, just easier for me to quickly figure out the relationships.

@Robert, congratulations that you were able to convert them into SAS format.  4 were done with R, 3 with SPSS, 5 with Excel, 2 with Tableau, 1 with Matlab, 1 with Python, 1 with SAS, and 1 with JavaScript.  My favorite is the very last chart. I get updates on Comsol that is used with Mathlab. Physicists and engineers use them.  I often work with Excel and have easily converted data into charts, bars, lines, dots, etc with a mouse's click.

@Robert wow, so you're able to get a link in the comments! I haven't been able to do that for a long time I'll try this one, then https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2016/12/30/our2016dataviz/?referrer=justicewire 

I thought you might be interested in it because it shows a number of different style graphics to illustrate the American incarceration story. As I said, I prefer graphics that deal with just a small number of variables, so I do find the big pie chart rather overwhelming.

It appears some of the links in the AllAnalytics copy of my blog post aren't working. I've sent JC an email, but an auto-reply tells me he's out of the office, so I'm not sure when the links will be fixed. In the meantime, I invite you to see the original copy of my blog (since that is one of the links that is broken, I'll give the full URL below):

@Terry I can say the same, way above my abilities.

@rbaz agreed. I like the way the wavy one #11 looks but more for art than for reading meaning into it. To gain insight, I prefer, clearly defined graphs that focus on just a few variables like #`17

Very impressive, @jmyerson! Since you're obviously speaking from experience, any favorites or preferred languages for graphics creation?

Yup, same here, @Michelle.

This is so far above my paygrade I'm getting a nosebleed!

Hint: JS can be used to create animations

Robert asked which software were used to create which graphs.  I can easily recognize one graph created with MathLib.
