You don't even mention the problems with the categories themselves.

Anyone aged 65 years of age would not have a place in this chart. Too old for the 60-64, and too young for the "over 65"

bob: thanks for mentioning it. I wrote, then deleted the sentence about age categories. The other crazy category is 13-14 when all other non-edge groups are 5-year groups. This issue originates from the CDC data though.

avert.org appears now to have seen the error of their ways, and (presumably) spent some of their donors' money on creating bar charts instead. "Do it nice, or do it twice".
