Big data


NytshopA bit of USA Today crept onto the New York Times this weekend, as evidenced by this gift-wrapped chart shown on the right. 

Because the categories (more, same, less) have a logical ordering and the number of categories is small, I prefer to show this data is in its natural order.  Here the data was shown in order of decreasing frequency.

How this data supports the statement about action and intention implicit in the article's title shall also remain a mystery.
