Separated

The folks at DailyKos have an interesting series of surveys.  The second question from this one has been getting a lot of play recently, but the first question is interesting as well.  A lot of people no longer identify as Republican and those left behind are settling into increasingly minority opinions.

Thanks to Jim I’ve updated the chart so the two uses of OTH/REF (presumably Other/Refused) are  distinguished.

Now to a second question, how come I’ve never seen stacked bar charting software that let’s be adjust set the bar chart width based on yet another number, i.e. how part a share of the sample was in that vertical?

    one is probably a refusal to offer their age, the other to offer their race/ethnicity. i would assume that not offering a political affiliation just got them lumped into independent.

    actually, looking at the placement in the poll results on dailykos, it looks like ‘OTH/REF’ is for political affiliation, and ‘OTHER/REF’ is for race/ethnicity.

    I don’t know particular software, but the keyword is mosaic plot.
