Thanks for the suggested alternative! I sat through an awful display of stacked bar charts recently. There are so many issues with them. One has to be so careful that the message is actually coming through when you look at the chart; as you show, it takes some work to figure out what it all means!

Nice and informative site, but the ads detract from it (and its messagE) and the slogan "Recycling chartjunk as junk art. A blog by data visualization critic, Kaiser Fung." isn't visible.
