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 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):

@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
