Income distributions in American's pastimes

Via the Data Is Beautiful subreddit. (click image to embiggen)


  1. Doesn't include gardening, easily one of the most popular pastimes of all.

    Also, the headline of the graphic is "Income distributions in America's pastimes", implying all or the most popular pastimes. But the first sentence in the description states "adult participation in different pastimes", a much more accurate description of what they're presenting. One of the bothersome things about the computer era is we get all sorts of "data is beautiful" graphs thrown at us, but the graphs are only as good as the lacunae in the data.

  2. I'm still struggling with "Data Is..."

    Though, since it's reddit, I'm sure it's been addressed ad nauseum.
