I'm assuming that there's a typo in the label for the leftmost 'bar' in the first chart. It should probably say "<18". Sure, that's obvious, but I can let it slide. To keep the labeling consistent, the last label should be ">=65" instead of "65+". Again, not a big deal. However, the height of the people doesn't represent the data at all--this bugs me the most.
