    Interesting data!

    One question though – it appears that the size of the pie slices in the world map arent' quite right though… for example, in North America the black pie slice shoudl be 50.3%, but it looks more like ~30% in the pie. Similarly, the other black slices all seem way smaller than they should be. Any explaination for that? (maybe I'm reading it wrong?)

  4. Robert Allison says:

    I'm not sure if I can post links in comments(?), but if so, here's a version of the map I've created using SAS/Graph, with the pie slices programmatically sized based on the % value, for comparison:
