Charts and graphs are ways of communicating information! This thread is for posting charts and graphs and also discussing those charts and graphs! All charts and graphs are welcome! Let's chart (and graph)!

Patient advocates and doctors are worried about the lax regulations on medical devices "particularly in light of some all-metal artificial hips that are failing prematurely at an unusually high rate." This summer, Representative Erik Paulsen (R) Minnesota made a speech about how the FDA should have fewer safety regulations.

The average cost of winning a House election is $1.4M

So, opinion check here.

Do you guys think the US is as fucked up, inequality-ridden, and inhabited with more down-trodden worker drones compared to other developed nations as these graphs seem to suggest, or do you think it's just clever manipulation of data?

Just asking, 'cos over here I have 5 weeks paid holiday, work < 40 hours a week for a good salary, and if I suddenly transmogrify into a woman, I'd be entitled to 6 months paid maternity leave too!

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Luna Fortuna on October 27, 2011, 04:36 pm
I could definitely get behind those wonderful things, Wibble, but for the time being, benefits at that level just sound sort of weird to me. Unfamiliar, not undesirable. I work ten, maybe eleven hours, but it starts early in the morning so I still have long evenings at home. I had six weeks of maternity leave, my salary is livable as a single income with a tight budget. I don't feel like a drone at all, yet I believe these comparisons have not been manipulated, and my statistical place is planted squarely in the middle of every group for which I feel compassion on these charts. Our brains default to content, I suppose.

Enjoy the time off, Wibble, rub it in why don't you.

(http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a122/wibster/WibSprog.png)

I get 2.5 weeks paid holiday, work 40-45 hours a week, but don't really have a good feel for what typical maternity benefits are. People with a good education who find their way into good jobs can typically get at least comparable benefits to those overseas (with the exception of typical work weeks being slightly longer).  Union/blue collar workers actually often get better benefits than that because they're actually on a contract and have collective bargaining (which Republicans are trying to kill).  Probably the people who have the worst time of it are unskilled labor and part-time labor. 

The real issue over here is not that those benefits aren't available, but that they aren't guaranteed and are often used as leverage over employees by employers.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Bettytron on October 27, 2011, 08:28 pm
I work 50 hours a week at a minimum, which is pretty typical in my industry, and I get 3 weeks vacation, which is more than most of my peers, but I think it's because my bosses are English and so are vaguely horrified at the idea of only getting two weeks. I'm not sure what their maternity leave policy is, so I can't speak to that. Again, though, this is a cushy white collar job. And blue collar workers who're unionized (auto workers, electrical workers, other skilled labor) will be relatively secure in their benefits. It's what JRB said, though, that the government doesn't guarantee those benefits. So it's the people who work in "unskilled" labor- food service, retail, and so on, who are already probably not earning more than the minimum wage ($7.25/hour, or $15,080 a year before taxes [9,375 GBP] assuming they take no vacation and are working a full 40 hour week- many of these kinds of employers will limit it to 35 to avoid having to provide insurance or overtime pay), and who would most need maternity leave or other benefits, who are left completely unprotected.

So in short, I don't think the middle and upper class have it worse than comparable nations. I think the lower class, unemployed, and underemployed do have it much worse.

A couple more about income inequality:

(http://i.imgur.com/9Qt0O.png)
In the last 30 years, the top 1% have seen their share of the American national income more than double while the rest of the top quintile's share has remained steady.

(http://i.imgur.com/hzQKx.png)
Even among the top 1%, the inequality is unequal. The 99-99.9 percentile are taking a larger share of the income, but the growth in the percentage of the income the top 0.1% is rising even faster.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Bettytron on November 02, 2011, 07:06 am
Hrrrgh I saw this chart before and it continues to make me mad. I probably don't have to tell you guys this, but most people who live below the poverty line are renting, which means the refrigerator and stove/oven come with the place. A microwave might, too. And in big cities, you can get a used tv for free through craigslist pretty easily, or at least for less than $60. These aren't huge luxuries that poor people are spending welfare income on, this is having refrigerated food. And like Glav said, in plenty of climates having an AC is pretty essential, especially if you don't want to die of heat stroke. And, again, it's an item you can acquire used fairly cheaply.

What I want to know is, who are these people with more than one refrigerator?  Unless they're counting mini-fridges in that, and I think we can all agree that they should be their own separate category, the number should be way closer to 0%.

we did use the second fridge for storing the souls of innocents, so, yeah probably a devil.

on a more serious note, I think the second fridge is more of a rural thing. Where I grew up the nearest grocery store was an hour away, so we would only go shopping once a week and needed the extra fridge space.

Wall Street’s Repeat Violations, Despite Repeated Promises
Many big Wall Street firms have settled fraud cases brought by the government with a promise to never violate the same law. But an analysis of Securities and Exchange Commission documents by The New York Times found that since 1996, there have been at least 51 repeat violations by those firms. Bank of America and Citigroup have each had six repeat violations, while Merrill Lynch and UBS have each had five.

I've always wondered about the people who make images like that.

Because you know they looked at all the covers, realized that "haha, America gets the stupid covers and everyone else gets the important/intellectually interesting covers" isn't actually true at all, and then put together a thing to make people think a thing that's clearly not true.  Do they justify basically being a liar with some kind of ends justifying the means thing?   



Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Remington Lonespear on December 01, 2011, 09:43 pm
According to fermun, the original SA thread that started the whole thing was discussing the idea that unless a cover is America specific we don't get any of the really important looking covers.  The examples nchammer used to refute the image were originally part of the discussion.  Then they were removed in order to make a more succinct point but at the same time ended up losing the point because you can clearly go into the covers and find examples that disprove it.

Surely there's also the possibility of multiple separate offices producing content for Time, like there is  with basically all magazines that have varying national editions. The difference in covers could actually stem from the fact that the articles they represent aren't even in that month's magazine for all regions. I know Wired does this all the time - holding back on stories in favour of others that may be more timely or relevant to a specific regional audience, and then recycling the older content at a later date.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread

Isn't that the whole point of Senators?  So the smaller states don't drowned out by the larger ones?  And you have proportional representation in the lower house, right?  It works the same way in Australia.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on December 05, 2011, 11:29 am
It is the point, it doesn't mean it is a good thing. It is unrepresentative crap. If you are from one of the states with smaller population, your vote has a lot more weight than that of someone from a more populous state. California has more population than the 21 least populous states. It takes only 41 senators to make an unbreakable filibuster, (as small as 12% of the population) giving the minority party more say in what can be in legislation than the majority party.

If you look at those 21 least populous states, they are 5 blue, 2 purple, 14 red, more often than not, the House of Representatives is Democratic controlled and the Senate is Republican controlled. The Senate was originally intended to preserve slavery despite the will of the majority of the population, and to this day it continues to be shit.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Karlski on December 06, 2011, 01:10 am
Right, so, what's the alternative that prevents less populous states from getting shat on by larger ones?


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on December 06, 2011, 01:38 am
My own preference would be for a unicameral legislature. Take the House and the Senate and merge them into MegaCongress with 535 members. Keep the current way of assigning representatives and senators and keep their current term lengths. Make the rules more similar to the House than the Senate. It still gives the less populous states more say per voter, but you no longer would have a situation where it would be possible for the legislators for 12% of the population to hold an unbreakable lock preventing legislation from passing.

I think that it is a problem in the current structure of the American government that a party must win 3 elections in a row in order to have the power to pass an election platform, and the Senate is the cause of that problem.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: CatAstrophe on December 06, 2011, 12:22 pm
I agree with fermun's take in general. Also, I don't know how Australian territories are represented in your legislature, but the difference between the smallest state in Australia and largest state in Australia is just under 7 million. That's a pretty big difference, but the largest state in the US has a difference in population population of 36 million MORE than at least the 12 least populous states. 40% of our population is in five of our states and more than 75% in 20 of them. Australia's smallest political body in the Senate is 1% of your population, the next smallest is 1.5%, and the rest make up much more than that. The smallest 18 states in the US are less than 1% of the population each. The disproportionate representation, though intended, is humongously more disproportionate here.

I guess what I am trying to say is we are the 99%

The nonprofit organization Environmental Working Group reviewed 84 popular kids breakfast cereals and found that a disturbing number of them contain a disturbing amount of sugar.

In fact, Kellogg’s Honey Smacks — which, funnily enough, was once called Sugar Smacks — contains more sugar in a one-cup serving than an entire Hostess Twinkie.

Kellogg’s vice president of nutrition Lisa Sutherland told NPR that Honey Smacks are not marketed to kids and are “seldom eaten by them.”

Not marketed to kids? That would explain Dig’Em, the cereal’s cartoon frog mascot with the funky sideways baseball cap.

No, wait. The opposite.

So if voting "anti-choice" is "Waging a War Against Women", does that mean that voting "anti-life" is "Waging a War Against Babies"? 

Regardless of your side in an awfully polarized issue, you come off as a total cock when you make a graphic like that.  It's not a simple black & white issue.  Talk about it like grown ups, not like Fox News.



Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Remington Lonespear on January 21, 2012, 04:31 pm
Yeah, it would be, if "anti-life" were a stance.  But "pro" and "anti" are opposites, not "life" and "choice".


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on January 21, 2012, 06:23 pm
But that's my point.  The opposite stance to pro-choice chooses the term pro-life.  What they're doing here is deliberately refusing to accept that term as a way of applying a negative connotation to their views.  So anti-abortion advocates labeling the opposite view "anti-life" is exactly the same.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: CatAstrophe on January 21, 2012, 07:12 pm
I just cannot take the phrase "War on [fill in the blank]" seriously unless it's referring to two opposing militaries. I also co-sign the sentiment that the term "anti-choice" is silly, just as the term "anti-life" would be if it comes into use (god I will kill myself if it does). I also find the terms pro-life and pro-choice silly as well, I prefer anti-abortion rights and pro-abortion rights, but those have been around so long I just accept them.

Obviously I dislike the information presented on that graph, but I was constantly rolling my eyes at the terminology. My feeling is that if you want a graph to give information that convinces people we are facing a problem, you don't want their first reaction to be eye rolling. Otherwise the graph is just a wank for people who already completely agree with you.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: drunkpiano on January 21, 2012, 07:33 pm
I don't really see the problem with referring to people who are against choice as anti-choice. They're saying "hey you don't get to choose what happens to your body." That's hella anti-choice. Also, "anti-life" could easily apply to pro-lifers as well, since they tend to push against lifesaving abortions and for capital punishment.

They use the "war on women" language because extremist pro-life legislation like this is a concerted attack on a woman's right to self-determination. Yes it's an embellishment, they're not gunning down women in the streets or anything, but it's eye-catching. It causes civil discussion like we're seeing here, and more heated discussion elsewhere, but the point is that it causes discussion.

I understand your point and am already aware of the reasons for using those terms but I am less concerned about how well these terms fit onto groups of people than I am about how it is perceived. As far as creating discussion goes, information presented in this way does not create civil discussion among people who disagree with each other. I know that changing peoples' minds is extremely difficult, but it is not completely impossible and if begins with civil discourse. Using terms that makes them feel demonized does not help the cause in any way though.

The abortion debate does not exist in black in white, we are not either people who support 100% abortion in any situation no matter what or people who think all forms of birth control should be illegal. There are people who exist somewhere in the middle who may feel like they identify more with the "pro-life" movement that aren't fundamentalists and feel like they are being demonized by these words, therefore turn away from those that are "pro-choice." But if information is presented with less polarizing language they may stop supporting policies that limit reproductive rights.

NARAL's primary activities are calls to action for letter-writing, phone-banking, etc. They do not primarily aim at convincing people who are not for abortion rights or who are on the fence about abortion rights, they instead try to get people who are pro-choice to bug their congressperson or vote for the more pro-choice candidate. Because NARAL's stuff is aimed at people who are pro-choice already, it's going to be less sympathetic to the other side than things by groups who are aiming at converting or people on the fence.

Okay, well that makes sense, thank you. My only knowledge of NARAL was that they were an organization that supported abortion rights so I just assumed that education campaigns and community outreach would be a thing they did, but I guess I'm projecting the "importance" of my profession onto others.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: HyperGlavin on January 22, 2012, 03:18 am
But that's my point.  The opposite stance to pro-choice chooses the term pro-life.  What they're doing here is deliberately refusing to accept that term as a way of applying a negative connotation to their views.  So anti-abortion advocates labeling the opposite view "anti-life" is exactly the same.

You do know that the terms 'pro-life' and 'pro-choice' were originally coined to firmly establish a false dichotomy among those who self-identify as either, right? Their use implies that anyone who doesn't agree is 'anti-life' or 'anti-choice'. Ever since then, the debate has been hostile by definition.

And for the record, the pro-lifers started it. (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=pro-life)

I realize that both sets of terms are hostile.  I guess what I was trying to say is that when the source begins communicating information by disparaging the opposing view, it's hard to grant any credence to their information.  You may as well post a graph of Fonzie going "Heyyyy!", because it's an equally reliable source of facts about abortion.

The information there is basically "People disagree with us!" and they're expecting the reader to go "YEAH FUCK THEM IN THE FUCKING ASS!"  The pro-life side of the argument is definitely just as guilty of this type of behavior, I'm not trying to say that the pro-choice people have a corner on the dickhead market.  The point is that just because both groups do it doesn't make either of them less dickheads. And it disgusts me either way when this sort of Fox News-style garbage becomes the method of debate.

So I don't know why this graph was posted.  Maybe it was to make a dick out of NARAL and have a laugh about what assholes they are.  If so, I'm sorry for killing the joke.  But if it was posted to communicate information to us, then my message is that every other asshole that does this gets mercilessly mocked by us and we shouldn't really cut them slack just because we might have more sympathy for their message.

Post by: Mr Gale on January 22, 2012, 10:14 am
I'm not sure using the accepted... if decisive... language the debate is usually framed in on a graph makes the information unsound or due for mockery. Like someone said, it's aimed at the people who already agree on the issue not as an act of "conversion" to those that don't. Its relaying how to those (who are not anti abortion) that the right to abortions is being eroded and to what degree, presumably as a rallying call or whatever to act more and express their views more to change that in America. A place where the issue is very much in play.

You could make a good argument for "not lowering the tone" and avoiding rhetoric that divides in any context, but it seems a much broader one that would apply to well... large elements of politics (especially in the States), and not something that needs to be singled out in this one source. Not when it tinges so much of debate and discussion, its not limited to this single issue.

I would agree that if anyone wants to actually debate abortion (with a view to changing minds, coming to compromise etc), then yeah its helpful to respect the other sides position as much as you can (however you feel about it.) Like I think Christianity is broadly stupid, needs to remain out of politics and anyone who wants to ban abortion indiscriminately is a fucked up nazi who probably hates women, but I am not going to actually lead with that if I am trying to debate the issue with someone. Like they presumably wouldn't lead with how I am a pagan demon who is going to hell for baby murdering.

It's odd that you should mention that clip because the language that they use, while disingenuous, is largely inoffensive. A lot of the information the first speaker recites is given in straightforward, plain English.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on January 22, 2012, 03:47 pm
The graph was good, the information is important.

One year and two days ago Dr. Kermit Gosnell was charged. You might remember him from a couple years ago, he was reportedly the only doctor in the mid-Atlantic willing to do illegal late-term abortions. This is a very dangerous procedure, and because it is dangerous and illegal, it's done in a shitty way. Dr. Gosnell did not have the equipment or training to safely perform late term abortions, and instead he induced labor, and afterwards would cut the spinal cord. The rollback of women's reproductive rights in the last decade with the Partial Birth Abortion Ban and state level laws to close/defund abortion clinics were destined to result in death. A poor woman who can't afford an insurance plan that covers the procedure or can't afford to fly to a state that has legal late term abortion has to go to an awful place like Dr. Gosnell's clinic. One woman died by overdosing on the drug to induce labor.

That is what illegal abortion is, death for women.


Today is the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. 39 years ago today abortion became legal and a woman no longer had to choose between continuing an unwanted pregnancy or risking death.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Bettytron on January 22, 2012, 05:20 pm
Everything fermun said is right.

I would like to add that the measures taken to limit or ban abortions recently include numerous attempts (some successful) to cut off state funding to places like Planned Parenthood. PP does provide abortion services, but also provide birth control, mammograms, pap smears, STD treatments, prenatal care and infant care, not to mention general information on women's health. And they do all of this on a sliding scale based on income, or free if you don't have insurance or can't pay anyway, very few questions asked. In Virginia, regulations were passed which required clinics that provided abortions to meet hospital building codes- things like very wide hallways and wheelchair ramps at every entrance, which no doctor's office could possibly meet, especially by the deadline determined by this law. So they shut down. And these are places which also provide myriad healthcare services to women. So you have these self-described pro-life politicians passing laws that not only limit access to abortions (with devastating results, as fermun describes, as you can see in any country where abortion is banned and women are left in impossible situations) but also completely remove the only source of healthcare for many low-income women. It's this that so clearly demonstrates that, for them, it is not about reducing abortions, but is just totally and completely anti-women. This is why NARAL calls it a War Against Women. It really doesn't seem that hyperbolic to me. And I do take issue with nomenclature like the "War on Terror" because you can't declare war on a concept, it's silly and overblown and self-defeating. When legislators are repeatedly promoting law that affects women, and only women, negatively, then it is not that crazy to say "Hey women are being targeted here".

And, again, this is a chart that NARAL is using to draw attention to stuff they've been reporting on all year, it's like a round-up. The main thing they do is follow all of this legislation and analyze how it affects women and women's health, and they do scorecards for politicians based on how they vote on that legislation. So they're reaching out to their supporters, here, getting them revved up and ready to donate money to help support the NARAL cause. That is the purpose, here. Saying "anti-choice" is certainly less disingenuous than referring to the pro-choice movement as "pro-abortion", too.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: CatAstrophe on January 22, 2012, 06:40 pm
I don't think anyone is literally pro-abortion, the term I was using is pro-abortion rights.

I am reluctant to continue this discussion because, at the heart of it, we all agree in terms of policy and know the purpose of this graph. But I always cringe when I hear the anti-abortion movement described as anti-woman or a movement to control women. Not that it is not for many many awful people, I am more than aware of the history of the subjugation and control of women through many means, but there is at least a vast minority (or more) for which being anti-abortion has nothing to do with a desire to control women. Of course when you vote for anti-abortion rights legislators and legislation the effect is often the same as if you were anti-woman's rights, but framing the movement in terms of controlling women will not gain you more support than the supporters you already have and endear you to no one that does not think along the same lines as you. Back when I was vehemently anti-abortion (though all of my other beliefs were very liberal) and I heard people say those types of things my immediate reaction was "You're a fucking idiot, of course I don't hate women and I support woman's rights" and I shut down to any reasonable argument made afterward.

Perhaps this is off topic because it is no longer a response to the purpose of the graph itself but the the terms "War on Women" and "anti-choice", but I feel like whenever I see these phrases thrown out I have to make this point. Nothing to do with hurting people's feelings specifically, but I shudder to think at the further polarization and backlash if this kind of discourse becomes more common.

Edit - I shudder, not shutter.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Bettytron on January 22, 2012, 07:08 pm
Oh, I didn't mean your use of that phrase- I have come across many pro-life people who've described my position as "pro-abortion" and that is what bugs me.

I agree with what you are saying, too. I do think that using strong rhetoric in a debate situation just poisons the conversation, on either side. I also don't think that the purpose of this chart was for debate, and I think that's why it doesn't bother me in this case. This is the internet, though, this stuff gets passed around and I can easily see the chart in some email chain with some pro-life people using it as an example of liberal paranoia and exaggeration.

I still think the language of the "War on Women" is useful though, because it underscores how much of the legislation NARAL reported on, over the last year, was not just attacks on abortion rights, but also women's access to birth control and cancer screenings and other healthcare. I'm also certain that this is my view because I follow NARAL on Facebook, and I get their email updates and so I'm pretty tuned in to what they've been discussing. In that context, to me, it doesn't seem overblown. Here's an op-ed by Nancy Keenan where she outlines the kinds of things that chart is referring to (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nancy-keenan/women-choice_b_1220128.html). With that added context, to me, the language she and NARAL use makes perfect sense. And it serves it's purpose, of both kind of preaching to the choir and getting the choir to call their representatives and donate money and spread links around.

So basically I guess I feel that out of context, that chart wouldn't serve to change anyone's minds, either with the information it contains or the language that it uses. But for those of us who are already pro-choice, it is illuminating to see how much more the abortion debate has been an issue in the past year, and the language serves to reinforce our feelings about that injustice and inhumanity.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on January 22, 2012, 07:27 pm
One thing that I'm completely in agreement with what Bettytron said on is that it's kind of insane for pro-life people to simultaneously oppose abortion, oppose access to birth control and oppose access to health care.  As Gale suggested, that largely comes about through a combination of religion with the politics.  When people take that attitude it's very easy to see how anti-women labels get applied to the pro-life movement.

I personally have a problem with abortion in the general sense, but I also don't believe that it's as simple of voting pro-life so we can just ban it.  If you want to talk about a progressive notion that the unborn are human beings, then you need to talk about it within the holistic social context of what consequences that has for society as a whole.  You can't just abandon it all to the chauvinistic idea that the dumb bitches shouldn't have spread their legs. 

At some point if the pro-life movement ever wants to make any lasting progress on the issue, they need to get away from the hardline religious interference that leads to the insane notion of combining abstinence only education with simple abortion bans.  There needs to be a pragmatic discussion of what ending abortion actually entails and what sacrifices (e.g. tax support for health care services and adoption) are needed to even make it feasible to discuss.  The alternative of simply wishing for the magic occurrence of "God's Kingdom" where everybody hates sin and never has extramarital sex is naive in the extreme, and is about as unproductive as ignoring the problem altogether.

When I get the chance I'd like to start a thread on how to discuss abortion without turning it into an emotional issue, from either position.

This also seemed relevant to the conversation at hand and it is also a chart:
(https://motherjones.com/files/images/aww-scatter.preview.gif) (http://motherjones.com/mojo/2012/01/chart-day-abortion-rates-around-world)

This also gives credence to the argument that to be truly "pro-life", you must support safe, legal abortion, comprehensive sex ed, and access to contraception. Those are the tools women need in order to have the children they want, if or when they want them, safely.

Since 2003, these laws can not be enforced, but some states still have sodomy laws on the books. The reasoning for them remaining on the books tends to be some combination of not being worth the effort (since they can't be enforced) and a hope that one day the Supreme Court's 2003 decision will be overturned and then it's back to arresting gay people for being gay!

In America, Catholics have tended to be poorer than average and have a larger percentage of minorities than average. Historically, Catholic leaders have been in favor of social justice and with a large chunk of the Catholic population being below median income, its pulled Catholics towards the Democratic Party. Furthermore, free birth control is pretty popular with people who sometimes have trouble affording birth control.

The leaders of Catholic organizations are very much against the provisions of Obama's healthcare reforms that require no-cost birth control. Many Catholic universities are making a stand on this issue, and John Boehner, the (Catholic) Speaker of the House has threatened to shut down the government entirely unless the provisions that allow for free birth control are removed by an executive order.

If the opposition manages to knock down the whole health care progress that's been made by being stubborn over this one asinine little detail, I will be severely pissed.  While on the whole I support that the new health care plan covers birth control for women, I would much rather see a compromise be made and alternate arrangements be made to provide the relatively small cost of birth control to a relatively small portion of total employees (i.e. those that work for religious organizations).


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on February 08, 2012, 06:30 pm
I haven't found anybody talking about numbers of people actually affected so I looked into it a bit, but didn't find anything near complete data.

The number of workers in Catholic hospitals is 600,000 (http://www.catholicsforchoice.org/topics/healthcare/documents/2005factsaboutcatholichealthcare.pdf).  The total number of hospital workers is around 14 million (http://www.bls.gov/oco/cg/cgs035.htm).  So 4% of hospital workers would be affected. 

Catholic K-12 schools employ about 160,000 (http://old.usccb.org/comm/cip.shtml).  I haven't been able to find information about Universities.  The most significant numbers outside of Catholic groups also probably fall within education and depending on details may qualify as exempt anyway as they "propagate the faith."

As far as general organizations like charities or the other groups that are formally affiliated with a religion, I couldn't find any data.  Probably because that definition is pretty fluid.

There are about 130 million (http://www.bls.gov/webapps/legacy/cesbtab1.htm) total workers in the USA.  Based on the numbers I WAS able to find, I would say that it's reasonable to estimate that we're talking about maybe 1% of the workforce that are affected by this ruling (I'm actually surprised it's that high). 


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Bettytron on February 08, 2012, 07:15 pm
That's 1% of the workforce, and also their families who may be included on their health insurance plans. I think the principle of the thing is really important here, because we're talking about letting employers impose their religious beliefs on their employees.

This guy (http://barthel.tumblr.com/post/17211273511/freedom-from-religion) summed it up really neatly, I think.

The Washington Post Editorial Board opines: (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/respecting-religious-exemptions/2012/01/22/gIQA0ZESJQ_story.html)

Quote
...the significance of the new health-care law is that the federal government will for the first time require all employers to provide insurance coverage for their workers — in other words, to spend their own money to help underwrite this coverage — or, in many cases, to pay a penalty. In this circumstance, requiring a religiously affiliated employer to spend its own money in a way that violates its religious principles does not make an adequate accommodation for those deeply held views. Having recognized the principle of a religious exemption, the administration should have expanded it.

Does that ruling deal specifically with religious exemptions and regard to the first amendment?  The defendant parties aren't named, so it's not clear.  The opinion from the Washington Post is that if the administration is recognizing the religious implications of the decision and offering an exemption to church-specific religious organizations, it seems silly to quibble over how specific to get over whether or not a Catholic hospital is also a religious organization.   

I guess I don't understand why there's such opposition to finding a compromise here.  What if, as part of the exemption for religious organizations, you required them to provide the ability to opt-out of the employer plan with a cash payment equivalent that the employees that could use to purchase health care of their choosing on their own (which will be readily available anyway on new government mandated exchanges).  Then the churches are not being asked to directly subsidize something they have a problem with, and the people are still able to get their health care from their employer.  It's basically the most trivial compromise in the world but people are getting out and drawing a line in the sand about it.

That EEOC ruling is that religious organizations with 15 or more employees still have to meet Civil Rights Act requirements for not discriminating based on gender and that they therefore have to help pay for contraception for female employees in their insurance. They have been paying for part of birth control this entire time. The health care reform only changes that it is in effect for organizations with fewer than 15 employees and that they have to provide birth control coverage with no copay.

It has been ruled that it is gender discrimination to not provide coverage on a preventative care medicine for a condition that only effects one gender, so I don't think compromising on it is necessary. The law is clear. It is gender discrimination to discriminate based on ability to become pregnant.

Quote
  • Respondents must cover the expenses of prescription contraceptives to the same extent, and on the same terms, that they cover the expenses of the types of drugs, devices, and preventive care identified above. Respondents must also offer the same coverage for contraception-related outpatient services as are offered for other outpatient services. Where a woman visits her doctor to obtain a prescription for contraceptives, she must be afforded the same coverage that would apply if she, or any other employee, had consulted a doctor for other preventive or health maintenance services. Where, on the other hand, Respondents limit coverage of comparable drugs or services (e.g., by imposing maximum payable benefits), those limits may be applied to contraception as well.
_
  • Respondents' coverage must extend to the full range of prescription contraceptive choices. Because the health needs of women may change -- and because different women may need different prescription contraceptives at different times in their lives -- Respondents must cover each of the available options for prescription contraception. Moreover, Respondents must include such coverage in each of the health plan choices that it offers to its employees. See 29 C.F.R. part 1604, App. Q&A 24; Arizona Governing Committee v. Norris, 463 U.S. 1073, 1081-82 n.10 (1983).

This has been the law for 11 years, 3 months. For all this time, religious organizations were being asked not to discriminate based on gender and no one complained.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on February 08, 2012, 09:28 pm
I don't even agree with the church on this.  I think they're taking a hardline stance for no reason.  Paying for their employees health care, which includes birth control is no worse than giving their employees a paycheck, which they can then spend on sinful things like drugs, hookers, or campaign funding for Democrats. 

The problem is that the other side is just as stupidly hardline.  Who the fuck cares?  You can trade a tiny concession to some whiny people, still provide their employees the coverage you're trying to provide, and get the much larger benefit of immediately covering 99% of the fucking workforce.  You can say you're standing up for a principle, but they're just standing up for one too (namely keeping government mandates out of their religion).  That principle may not be as valuable from a certain perspective as the principle of making sure that explicitly religiously affiliated employers can't even impose an inkling of religion on their employees, but it's clearly important to the other side.

As we discussed in the abortion thread regarding pro-lifers, sometimes by accepting a pragmatic view of events and making minor concessions to things that are important to other people, you can achieve a lot more on the larger principles that ultimately help everyone.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread

As a reminder, religious organizations are ALREADY subsidizing birth control to make it low-cost. They are currently fighting to not have to subsidize that little bit extra to make it free for the individual.

Then why exempt churches?
Because the religious charter schools, hospitals, and charities provide secular services and are therefore not primarily a religious institution and must follow all laws that apply to secular organizations.

I'm glad they compromised and kept access and health care available for everyone.  It's hilarious to me though that the compromise is basically "you're not going to pay for birth control, but you are going to pay for general health care, and then they're going to give birth control for free."  It's a compromised based completely on semantics, but if it shut up the complainers then I guess it's good.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on February 11, 2012, 03:40 pm
I don't think a compromise should have been offered. The Catholic Church-owned secular businesses have no right to impose Catholic doctrine on their employees, not even their Catholic employees. That is not religious liberty.

Anyhow, the accommodation was endorsed by the Catholic Health Association, but the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have rejected the compromise. If you consider the legalese semantics that were being made, it is not really any different than paying an employee money then that employee choosing to buy condoms or birth control pills. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops wants an exception made where not only churches but also secular organizations associated with the church and individuals who oppose pieces of health insurance coverage can all exempt themselves from any piece they want to and just cite religious reasons. A person could claim religious exemption for everything and not cover any health insurance under the provision the Catholic Bishops want.

This is getting a bit ridiculous. If the Catholic Church really wants to make a fight on whether secular businesses can impose their religious doctrine on the public, they will lose.

This is just a colored use of language to paint the situation as closely as possible to your opinion.  Saying "you can do whatever you want, but don't expect us to pay for it" is not an imposition of beliefs.  You're acting like the employees are being locked up and prevented from getting access to birth control.  It would be like saying that Chick-Fil-A closing on Sundays is imposing their religious beliefs on their employees.

But what do the Bishops expect then?  Should the government give them the right to force employees to sign a contract that they won't spend their paycheck on porn?  Or a computer that they will then use to look at free porn?  This is just ridiculously stupid, and they are acting more as an arm of the republican party than as religious leaders.  Providing health care to people is one of the corporal works of mercy.  Here you have an opportunity to do that for all Americans and you're quibbling over minutae.

Wanting an exemption for a law is not exactly the same as not being open on Sundays. The employer is not gifting health insurance to the employee, the employee EARNS that health insurance and they can choose how to use it. The employer is only managing that part of the compensation for their employee and they have no right to determine how the employee chooses to use it.

There are two IRS rules that HHS is using to decide who gets an exemption on this law and they are
1) Whether or not the primary purpose of an organization is ministerial.
2) Whether or not religion is used as a screening method for employment and services rendered.

The charities, hospitals, and schools fail the first one. The charities, hospitals, and schools fail the second one. They are not religious institutions even though they are associated with religious institutions. They are secular organizations associated with religious institutions.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was officially racist in its policies until 1978, it operated hospitals until 1974. Should it have had a religious exemption to a law like the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Of course not. The Catholic Church's secular organizations should not have an official exemption to discriminate against women.

Time off and vacation days are part of compensation too.  Maybe it's difficult to connect the dots with Chick-Fil-a because their employees mostly evoke imagery of part-time, high school kids, for whom those benefits don't usually exist in the traditional context. So clarify.  Imagine a Jewish gentleman who owns a factory.  One of the benefits his employees earn by working for him is periodic fixed holidays throughout the year.  This particular Jewish gentleman chooses to place those holidays on Rosh Hashanah and Passover, rather than Christmas and Thanksgiving.  Few would characterize that choice as "imposing Judaism on the workers."

The analogy clearly ends at the characterization. What's happening in the real case is that we're trying to define a new right of access to health care including that for women's reproductive care.  I don't object to that in any way.  All I object to is the use of language to describe the opposition that implies my side of the argument is the morally superior one.

As an interesting comparison to the rating of standards, here's actual performance.  Results are the 8th grade actual performance for white students (shut up it's all I could find in map form). From Here (http://bluegrasspolicy-blog.blogspot.com/2011/01/new-federal-science-test-results-are.html).  What's interesting is that though they have highly rated educational policy, CA, SC, and Indiana have middling actual performance.  Wisconsin, Montana, the Dakotas and Idaho have good performance but "terrible" policy.  I'm sure we can generate an argument about how worthwhile standardized testing is.

That's a cool video but naturally I have complaints.

(a) I'm pissed that they kept saying "known" sources of uranium, and emphasizing "known" as if to twist the knife in my brain. We stopped exploring for uranium in the 80's, because we'd found enough. Or because of environmentalism. At any rate, exploration started again in the 00's, and known sources are increasing again.

I won't mention exotic future nuclear tech, because the video anticipated that line of argument handily. But Canada already has reactors that can use thorium, which is three times as abundant as uranium.

I'm sure every energy source has fanboys who would object to something misleading in the video, but I'm also sure that the nuclear fanboys are righter.

(b) They left a Malthusian population catastrophe implied. After showing all those open-ended growth curves, they could have mentioned that at least population is expected to stabilize. It wouldn't diminish their point. The fact that they left it out just seems misleading.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: nak on February 20, 2012, 12:19 am
Ya in fact the 2050 total population figure is also when the global population is likely to stabilize and begin to drop. At that point total gdp per country year on year growth will be lower, even if the rate of gdp growth per person is still increasing (see Japan).

So even though the situation is dire, the current economic growth model which uses leverage does not imply doom.

Spermus, just because the crisis might happen a few decades later than assumed doesn't mean we shouldn't plan to avert it or deal with it. Nuclear fission is a non-renewable energy source.

And the demographic shift that occurred in today's rich countries required exponentially increasing and seemingly unlimited energy sources and minerals. Since we predict the end of these unlimited resources, it is by no means definite that poor countries will be able to follow the same pattern and the global population will stabilise at a sustainable level.

I'm not saying that the video was the last word on the subject, but for a teaching resource aimed at children I thought it was pretty good.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on February 22, 2012, 11:55 pm
Where were you? As a quickish summary of what that is all about, in 2003, the capital gains tax rate was lowered quite a bit, stock market investors had already pretty much filled up all of the good investments, so started investing more heavily in higher risk investments like real estate and commodity speculation. The extra money flowing in created a bubble which inflated prices on the consumer end for people who wanted to buy houses or any product that depends on a commodity, such as gasoline. The real estate bubble collapsed in late 2007 and early 2008, people who got out of real estate early enough to keep their money tossed it into commodity speculation which further inflated the bubble. The commodity market crashed shortly afterwards and gasoline's price more closely related to supply and demand.

The law for regulating commodities wasn't significantly strengthened and capital gains tax is still really low and wealth is still really concentrated so speculation money is going back into the commodity market, which is reflected in the price starting to rise again to the unreasonably high levels of summer 2008

Romney is not at all liked, the more people know about him the less liked he is. This seems to me like a recipe for the most hilarious train wreck of race-baiting scare politics, the only way Romney can win is to try to make Obama hated. I honestly think this is destined to make Romney go all-out on a racist negative campaign.

This is 11 months old, but I've been seeing a lot of news articles lately about how a bit more than half of the people who will be writing the party platform come the Democratic convention this summer support marriage equality but the president does not. There's going to be a 2012 version of this survey in about a month, if it continues this trend, I expect that the Democratic Party will endorse marriage equality.

So a poll released yesterday showed that Romney trails Obama by 19 points among women voters. That's a huge thing since there are expected to be about 135 million votes this election, with about 62 million voters being men, 73 million voters being women. Romney has begun trying to target women voters:

Social networking, Twitter in particular, gets reported as a story in itself. Mitt Romney recently gained 141,000 followers in 2 days. It's possible to buy bot followers, at a rate of $500 per 100,000 bot followers. Statistical analysis of the last 150,000 followers of Mitt Romney compared to the next 10 accounts above him in number of followers and the next 10 accounts below him in number of followers.
(http://i.imgur.com/RXHFR.png)
Indegree is the number of followers that the analyzed accounts had.

Statistical analysis of the data says that someone buys bots to follow Mitt Romney's Twitter account.

Barack Obama's followers are less likely than average to be bots.

If you follow the links through to the data, they have the raw numbers as well.  One thing that would be interesting to consider (at least to me) is the difference between the things that basically scale with income and those that are actually fixed cost.  So the housing is roughly a constant percentage of income, as is food at restaurants.  But utilities, which cost everyone roughly the same dollar amount goes down as a percentage.

This graph could be better by doing yearly costs for mars science laboratory. It didn't look very professional so I checked some numbers from http://asafm.army.mil/offices/BU/BudgetMat.aspx?OfficeCode=1200 and welp, that's just the US Army ammunition costs, no other branches included, no other equipment or whatever included. That's lots of bullets.

So this Cracker Barrel place literally is full of crackers?

Fake edit - I looked it up on Wikipedia since I hadn't heard of it before:

Quote
In early 1991, an intra-company memo called for employees to be dismissed if they did not display "normal heterosexual values". According to news reports, at least 11 employees were fired under the policy on a store-by-store basis from locations in Georgia and other states.[13][7] After demonstrations by gay rights groups the company ended its policy in March 1991 and stated it would not discriminate based on sexual orientation.[53][54] The company's founder, Dan Evins, subsequently described the policy as a mistake.[7] From 1992 onward,[55] the New York City Employees Retirement System, then a major shareholder, put forward proposals to add sexual orientation to the company's non-discrimination policy. An early proposal in 1993 was defeated, with 77 percent against and only 14 percent in support, along with 9 percent abstaining.[56] It was not until 2002 that the proposals were successful; 58 percent of company shareholders voted in favor of the addition.[53]

...

In July 1999, a discrimination lawsuit was filed against Cracker Barrel by a group of former employees, who claimed that the company had discriminated against them on the grounds of race.[59][60] Two years later, in December 2001, the same attorneys represented 21 of the restaurant's customers in a separate lawsuit, alleging racial discrimination in its treatment of guests.[61][62][63] Regarding both accusations, Cracker Barrel officials disputed the claims and stated that the company was committed to fair treatment of its employees and customers.[60][62][64]

In 2004, an investigation by the US Justice Department found evidence that Cracker Barrel had been segregating customer seating by race; seating or serving white customers before seating or serving black customers; providing inferior service to black customers, and allowing white servers to refuse to wait on black customers.[65] The Justice Department determined that the firm had violated Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Do you think the media are the right target for that really?  I would guess that a decent number of the "voices" come from within politics: a senator or congressperson.  During an election cycle, I would certainly expect candidates for offices, especially the presidential race, to be quoted at a much higher rate than other views.  To an extent, these results aren't surprising insofar as "candidates for office" is a group dominated by men.

I agree that women's voices should be heard on female-gender related issues, but if the media is just reporting on what the candidates have to say about the issues, the problem is more with the number of women running for office than it is with some kind of media conspiracy to silence womens' voices in the public sphere.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread

Well yeah, that's still part of the problem, but when you consider the fact that seventeen percent of quotes about women's rights came from corporations (women haven't managed even twice that amount) , there's obviously something going on there. I don't actually know of any corporations that have been potential candidates for any political position, although admittedly I'm British and therefore know very little about the actual day-to-day bullshit of your system.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread

Plus there's the obligation for the media to report on the facts of the situations and consequences of policies put forward, instead of merely giving dipshit male politicians another soapbox to yell from. Senators and congresspersons are far from the only people with authority on a subject and, as we've found, are far from the most well-educated on the matter. The conversation should not end with them, but it often does.

So yes, the media are definitely the right target for that since they're not doing their job effectively.

You make a good point but do remember that "Corporations" and "Organizations" are two very different beasts.  The latter includes women's rights groups, Planned Parenthood, and any number of other pro-women organizations out there, just as much as it includes corporate fatcats.

I was able to find Estonia's numbers from 1994-2010 on the UN's website.
1994: 28.2
1995: 17.1
1996: 15.1
1997: 12.7
1998: 14.1
1999: 11.4
2000: 10.4
2001: 10.1
2002: 10.5
2003: 10.9
2004: 6.7
2005: 8.4
2006: 6.8
2007: 6.9
2008: 6.3
2009: 5.2
2010: 5.2

So probably not included because of the early stuff, even though the last bit is better than the US numbers. Mexico, on the other hand is probably not included because of the drug violence

Here's Mexico's numbers from 1995
1995: 16.9
1996: 15.5
1997: 14.2
1998: 14.1
1999: 12.4
2000: 10.7
2001: 10.2
2002: 9.8
2003: 9.7
2004: 8.9
2005: 9.3
2006: 9.7
2007: 8.1
2008: 12.7
2009: 17.7
2010: 22.7

A sailboat has made it through the northernmost route of the northwest passage that has ever been travelled.
"The reduction of sea ice here made it possible for us to do a voyage that for hundreds of years blocked explorers," he said. "And we've managed to do this in a 30-foot-fibreglass boat with no ice reinforcements.

"To be the first sailboat to ever accomplish this route is quite telling of the environmental change taking place up here."

The bottom graph is actually a pretty good thing.  As far as combustion based power generation goes, natural gas is basically the one we're the best at using in a clean way.  Of course, 100% of the funding for continued natural gas research to continue to advance those technologies was cut.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on September 10, 2012, 06:06 pm
It's actually due to hydrofracking in the last few years that dropped natural gas prices, so it's good that natural gas is being used instead of coal, but there are problems with how natural gas is being obtained. I don't know at all what the environmental damage is with regards to hydrofracking vs. coal, but I suspect even with all the problems there are with hydrofracking, coal is worse. Coal is just really bad.

"The [greenhouse gas] footprint for shale gas is greater than that for conventional gas or oil when viewed on any time horizon, but particularly so over 20 years. Compared to coal, the footprint of shale gas is at least 20% greater and perhaps more than twice as great on the 20-year horizon and is comparable when compared over 100 years"


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on September 11, 2012, 02:23 pm
When I say "clean" I don't just mean greenhouse gases.  Emission of pollutants like NOx, SOx and soot, along with the trace, non-combustion environmental contaminants like mercury, are generally expected to be much higher when dealing with coal fired power generation, at least under current technology.

They may be correct in showing that shale gas has a higher greenhouse gas potential due to methane released in the drilling process, but I don't know that I buy the argument that it simply settles the case.  They get all up in arms about the comparison between natural gas and diesel fuel and how much worse shale gas is.  I'm not in a position to say really if that's true. 

What I am in a position to say though is that the exhaust from a methane combustor doesn't look like this, and that means something too:

Quote from: Krugman
Mark Thoma has the best data post so far on the execrable Romney speech, linking to the Hamilton Project work on taxes. This work makes a crucial point: even aside from the fact that there are other taxes besides the income tax, even aside from the larger point that lower-income working Americans are hardly grifters, the fact is that the vast majority of Americans do pay income taxes at some point in their life:
(http://i.imgur.com/HsBHa.png)
Thanks to the child tax credit and Earned Income Tax Credit, a fair number of working families with young children pay no income tax; thanks to the exemption on Social Security, many older Americans pay no income tax. But in middle age, close to 80 percent of the population pays income taxes, and even more, of course, pay federal taxes of some kind.

So the notion that almost half of our citizens are grifters isn’t just vile; it’s also based on a complete misunderstanding of tax realities.

A list of nations by % of children living in poverty:
(http://i.imgur.com/OT44Z.jpg)
A child is deemed to be living in relative poverty if he or she is growing up in a household where disposable income, when adjusted for family size and composition, is less than 50% of the median disposable household income for the country concerned.

Only 35th, Romania? Suckers.


23.1% of American children believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Parcae on September 22, 2012, 01:15 pm
The US has the largest median disable household income of any OECD country and one of the largest household sizes of all wealthy countries, so a poverty statistic based on % of median disposable household income and corrected for household size is not going to give an accurate picture of poverty in the US. Also, we already have entitlement programs that provide healthcare and food to the poor. Finally, I don't know how the OECD [fake edit: that graph doesn't appear to be from the OECD; where is it from?] gathers its figures, but US poverty figures exclude the impact of government aid.

It's great that the only place Romney is ahead of Obama is in Pakistan, and that's because Pakistan apparently hates the both of them.

Also in the US. But who cares about that hellhole.

The Haaretz article that comes from mentions some other telling statistics. It's no longer available to the public, so here are some of the survey results:

Quote

The majority of the Jewish public, 59 percent, wants preference for Jews over Arabs in admission to jobs in government ministries. Almost half the Jews, 49 percent, want the state to treat Jewish citizens better than Arab ones; 42 percent don't want to live in the same building with Arabs and 42 percent don't want their children in the same class with Arab children.

The ultra-Orthodox, in contrast to those who described themselves as religious or observant, hold the most extreme positions against the Palestinians. An overwhelming majority (83 percent ) of Haredim are in favor of segregated roads and 71 percent are in favor of transfer.

The ultra-Orthodox are also the most anti-Arab group - 70 percent of them support legally barring Israeli Arabs from voting, 82 percent support preferential treatment from the state toward Jews, and 95 percent are in favor of discrimination against Arabs in admission to workplaces.

Secular Israelis appear to be the least racist - 68 percent of them would not mind having Arab neighbors in their apartment building, 73 percent would not mind Arab students in their children's class and 50 percent believe Arabs should not be discriminated against in admission to workplaces.

The "Russians," as the survey calls them, display the most objection to classifying their new country as an apartheid state. A third of them - 35 percent - believe Israel practices no apartheid at all, compared to 28 percent of the secular and ultra-Orthodox communities, 27 percent of the religious and 30 percent of the observant Jews who hold that view. Altogether, 58 percent of all the groups believe Israel practices apartheid "in a few fields" or "in many fields," while 11 percent don't know.

White men only

(http://i.imgur.com/v3ovP.png)
Men only, but there were laws designed to prevent minorities from voting.

(http://i.imgur.com/OQIKx.png)
So white men and women and the suppressed minority voter laws that existed.

(http://i.imgur.com/Qfwsa.png)
The voting age was lowered to 18 in 1971. Without that, the election would have only barely gone to Obama.

Anecdotally, I've seen this.  Several times I volunteered with the annual Letter Carrier food drive, picking up the food people had put out that the carriers couldn't fit in their jeeps.  In lower-middle class neighborhoods, 80% of houses would have food out.  In the higher rent areas, you wouldn't even need to be there because there would be like 3 bags per block.

Nate Silver has nothing to do and the final election results came out on the 30th so he's been running statistical analysis of the election results. Grouping congressional districts into categories based on how they voted in presidential elections compared to the national popular vote average:

(http://i.imgur.com/jIVWxl.jpg)
There is an inherent bias (http://www.newyorker.com/talk/comment/2012/12/03/121203taco_talk_hertzberg?printable=true) in the house towards the political party that has a rural or suburban coalition. It is therefore expected that there would be a slight skew towards Republicans in this first picture, regardless of gerrymandering, though


Polarization with regression!
(http://i.imgur.com/7Kez5.png)
Red is the expected if there was no increase in polarization of voters, black is the actual regression. Slope gives an analysis of gerrymandering vs. inherent polarization. In this case, 1.08 means that there was an 8% increase in voter polarization between 2008 and 2012 regardless of the districts being gerrymandered.

I kind of hate this graph because Y is 0-90 instead of 0-100 and X is some kind of log scale.

The population density of counties was plotted against their vote results
(http://i.imgur.com/Qg6Kf.png)
Population density is the best indicator of voter preference.

(http://i.imgur.com/tMRjP.png)
I hate this graph so much. I HATE THIS GRAPH SO MUCH. It's so ugly. It's population density vs election result again but with red states plotted in dark red and light blue and blue states plotted in dark blue and light red. The trend of high density voting Democratic holds up for both, but the shift happens much earlier. Red states also don't have many dense cities. Look at St. Louis all by itself up there.

This is just a thing I hadn't seen before, but it's not all that meaningful really.

I do actually think the US legislature needs serious reform. I personally think that what we need is to have 3 senators per state, and 601 representatives, expanding the total size to 751 from 535. I also think it should be a single body rather than both a House and a Senate. Then for states with at least 3 reps, I would want a limit for house districts to be districts for at least 3 but no more than 5 representatives with voters getting to cast as many votes as their district has representatives.

There was recently a study released doing demographic predictions for a few politically important states. The share of voters that are white is expected to decrease as the number of Latino, Black, and Asian eligible voters will increase faster than the number of new White voters. In some states like Arizona, which has a lot of retirees, the number of White voters is actually expected to go down. 538 did an analysis of this demographics study using exit poll data from the 2012 presidential election to show what a 2016 election would be like based on demographic changes alone.

(http://i.imgur.com/eHeet7U.png)

The Republican Party needs to redefine themselves before then. The biggest predictor of how someone votes through their life is how they vote for their first 2 presidential elections. The Republican Party isn't even speaking to people who are not angry old white men right now. This analysis is just a study of racial demographic makeup alone, but it would mean that some of the swing states wouldn't even have a chance to swing.

If Republicans don't start speaking to minorities, they're going to be as much of a rump party as they currently are in California where Democrats hold a supermajority.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: GoMichael on March 03, 2013, 09:06 pm
That's extremely interesting. As the article points out, however, rates of minority turnout are going to be very important. Can the Democratic party keep their base interested in future elections? I'm not entirely sure, especially since Obama's monster of a fundraising/campaign apparatus isn't going to be there in 2016. So while it's true that the GOP needs to get its act together, if the Democrats don't capitalize on their opportunities right now a blue shift isn't a sure thing.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on March 03, 2013, 10:48 pm
Obama isn't going to destroy his get out the vote machine. Obama will leave his campaign machinery in place when he leaves. After the election his campaign did what it could to improve it. There will be a ton of other factors, but the Democrat election machine will operate. When you get a call to be reminded to vote, you will be getting a call from someone you're more likely to respond to and be offered a ride on top of it.

88% of Romney voters were White. They were also at a pretty decent turnout rate. It's not that Democrats need to capitalize on opportunities, it really is that the Republican party must win over some Democrat voters without losing any of their base.

Hmm, well I guess we'll have see. Obama and his campaign staff ran two of the best campaigns in the past couple of decades, maybe I just don't have enough faith in Democratic party leadership to keep it going.

Regardless, it's going to be fascinating watching whatever happens over the next four years in the GOP.

The republican party issued a report studying why they lost and what they should do about it. They concluded the only policy change to make should be immigration reform. There was also a vague recommendation to relax on some social issues but the specific issues weren't stated.

Instead the report said the biggest problem was with messaging.

You shouldn't get things like 22% of Mitt Romney voters believe Obama is the antichrist vs. 5% of Obama voters believing they support the antichrist and 6% of third party voters believing Obama is the antichrist. There is actually some data there even if there is noise from ironic votes. I think it would take more than just speculation to toss out any response, given how accurate polling has proven to be along with how the crosstabs shape up.

There's probably a massive shared conspiracy list though, if you believe in lizard people, you believe in NWO, you believe in moon landing hoax, you believe in a JFK assassination conspiracy, etc.

So earlier in IRC I said a thing about why it always seems like the absolute worst people in congress are in things that you wouldn't expect to be so terrible like the Committee on Education. People who believe there shouldn't be any public education being on that committee, etc.

So if you don't know, then here it basically is. Committee seats are filled up first by how much power being on the committee gives the people, you put your competent people in powerful spots. Then they are additionally ranked by how much being on the committees gets lobbyists to contribute towards your reelection campaigns.

Quote
Most of the nitty-gritty action in Congress happens in committees.

Not surprisingly, campaign contributions flow to members of the committees that big donors are really interested in — like, say, the ways and means committee, which oversees the tax code.

This makes a huge difference to lawmakers, who need a steady stream of donations to fund their re-election campaigns.

Both parties rank each committee for its fundraising potential. There are lists of the A, B, and C committees, and fundraising targets for the members. Those lists aren't public. Many lawmakers say these lists exist, but no one would give one to us.

So we created our own list, based on publicly disclosed fundraising numbers. At our request, of the Sunlight Foundation, .

The analysis found that Ways and Means is the most valuable committee for fundraising. Lawmakers on the Ways and Means committee raise an extra $250,000 a year compared to the average Congressman.

The judiciary committee was the worst. Congressmen on that committee raised $182,000 less than the average Congressman.

Source is spread out over 2 sites, I liked NPR's explanation of the general background better so that's the quote http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2012/04/06/149714908/the-most-and-least-valuable-committees-in-congress-in-1-graph

The actual table comes from The Sunlight Foundation, who actually did the number crunching NPR requested and did SuperPACs as well as just the individual donations that NPR talks about.
http://sunlightfoundation.com/blog/2012/04/02/housecommittees/

Just being on the Ways and Means committee gives you an extra $554,698 for your reelection campaign.

So if you ever wonder why some congressman that says something super dumb happens to be on Education or be a climate change denier on Natural Resources, etc. It's actually to be expected. When you get somewhere down to Foreign Affairs or below, you're at the back bench. These people are back benchers for a reason and the party leaderships don't want them to be getting attention.

(http://i.imgur.com/XxqqFaW.jpg)

Potentially political nonprofit applications were being referred for additional scrutiny by the IRS based on organization name alone. It became a scandal when it was revealed that politically conservative-sounding names were being referred. Two main keywords were Tea Party and Patriot, though another was Progress. If the president had been someone else, it probably would not have been a scandal.

That's incredible.  I'm from southeast Pennsylvania and it got all but one of my pronunciations correct.  The last pronunciation according to the map is isolated to northeastern Pennsylvania, and I picked up from my mother, who happens to have grown up there. 

The other one I always loved is the soda/pop issue.  There's a strong divide between the east and west halves of the state of PA, which led to drama at Penn State, located smack in the middle, as adherents from either side of the state vehemently defended their terminology.

There's a few other interesting ones I'd like to see on there, such as the distinction between spigot and faucet, and the existence of macadam, both of which are apparently regional terms that I never knew were regional.

I match the regions I grew up in (southern Minnesota and then the Twin Cities) perfectly, though things have changed since I moved to California, e.g. "pop" sounds weird to me now.

My favorite was the traffic circle/roundabout one. You'll notice a small bit of red near the Twin Cities but the rest of the state is mostly green (has no words for it). The only roundabouts I've ever seen in Minnesota are in the Twin Cities area and they've only just started adding them in the last 5-10 years as new developments have gone up.

There's recently been a College Republican study on people under 30 voting for Democrats in huge numbers. Talking about this with people, I keep running into the myth that people become much more conservative as they age. It's simply not true, there's only a moderate shift. Mostly people vote based on how they started voting.

(http://i.imgur.com/2EQk6tL.png)
http://www.people-press.org/2011/11/03/the-generation-gap-and-the-2012-election-3/11-3-11-12/

The Millenials study is being dismissed by pundits, the national party, everyone. It spells huge trouble for Republicans for a long time unless they start addressing the issues that actually matter to Millenials. Millenials have also been the most active generation in terms of showing up to the polls since the Greatest Generation.

This chart doesn't go into the DEGREE that one side beat the other either, only shows a party bias when the bias beat the margin of error. Millenials have sided Democrat by 66% and 60%, which is 13% and 9% over average respectively, which is a very large generational bias. That youngest Boomer/oldest Gen X group which is solid red did fall 59% to Reagan in 1984, the previous record on youth vote bias, but that was only 1% above national average.

Obama probably pulled the country hard left, despite his policies indicating more a moving the country a bit right.

This is part of a statistical analysis by someone who is examining what is becoming the majority opinion of Republicans, that there's no need to attract minority voters.

They also include net margin analysis, percent population * Partisan Voting Index, which shows that Democrats are gaining minority voters faster than they are losing white voters

http://prospect.org/article/south-gop-ok-being-white-people-party

Not enough data exists for 2012 to do the same analysis, but the argument is that in most states, the state-level party doesn't need to attract minority voters, and it might actually harm the local political machine to court non-white voters. There's been a disconnect, and that's reflected with how the House is so much different and crazier than it's ever been before. You don't need a broad base if you're essentially guaranteed 88% of the white vote.

That aircraft carrier chart makes it look like the US is newly competitive on the big carrier scene. We currently have 10 Nimitz-class carriers, which are almost exactly the same size and shape as the Gerald R. Ford-class. The Gerald R. Ford isn't a newly huge ship. It's a newly high-tech one. Specifically, it's more efficient and automated, to save money.

And it seems like they arbitrarily picked some light carriers and amphibious assault ships to pad the end. They got most of the non-US ships, but only one US one. The chart makes it look like the rest of the world is comparable to the US in carrier fleets, which is totes misleading and makes me feel discriminated against.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on August 01, 2013, 07:45 pm
Counterpoint: no it doesn't. It's only showing the modern carriers. The Fords, Nimitz, and de Gaulle class carriers are the only steam-catapult carriers as well so that's a significant extra factor that's not even listed in the chart. It's just a chart of showing what kind of carriers are out there. I don't think anyone would look at carrier 78 and think that the US was new to this business.

1) No one cares about your feelings
2) Because this is the charts and graphs thread and I have a chart, I honestly don't believe anyone on this forum thought the US had a single supercarrier and a single light carrier. That second one doesn't even have the Ford on it anyhow, since the Ford isn't done yet.
3) I ain't care, but the Bush has slightly different catapults too, check out that picture of it, it's still a Nimitz class but slightly different catapult setup that doesn't need to be as long.
4) Also, I guess Brazil's carrier has a catapult as well, the rest are ski jump launches though.

No, I seriously think some of the regional foods should be more noticeable. Texas is brisket barbecue, probably. Louisiana is on there because of Cajun food. I really would think that Maryland, Massachusetts, Maine, and North Carolina would show up there better with their pretty well-known regional foods.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Skeletonic on August 20, 2013, 03:08 pm
I imagine NY0 is up there because NYC is a big international foodie place, with tons of really great restaurants and stuff. Nevermind the regional stuff like pizza or hotdogs or whatever. Then there's going to be tons and tons of the "authentic (insert ethnic food style here)" places. It makes sense they'd place high, if not the highest, in the country.

A map about 200 CE travel times to Rome!
(http://i.imgur.com/UxNROzC.png)
Each contour is a week, each dot is a site which there is data on travel for. The data is then used to build the model which gives information on the places other than the specific sites there is data for. 14 modes of transit are modeled, based on what was known to be available in different areas, then the fastest one is picked to show the minimum time of traveling.

I think the most interesting thing of it is the time to England being slightly faster by river boats through Gaul and then across the Channel instead of all the way around.

Speaking as someone with little knowledge outside of just being a resident of the state, I believe a big reason for the major population shift in Kentucky (and I'd imagine in West Virginia as well) is the collapse of the coal industry and the lack of recovery/replacement infrastructure.

According to this article (http://thinkprogress.org/sports/2013/07/12/2290831/bluegrass-boondoggle-kentucky-uses-money-meant-to-redevelop-coal-country-to-fund-arena-renovation/) we do have a coal severance tax that takes 4.5% of money earned by Kentucky-produced coal with the idea of using it to develop post-coal infrastructure, but it's still a difficult situation. We're also, according to the article, using that money to refurbish our basketball arena for some reason (I live a mile and a half from it, it's perfectly fine).


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: BIG_STONE on August 28, 2013, 03:19 pm
I think you're right Snips. I'm originally from the Southwestern part of Virginia, and back in the mid-90s a major (for our area) mine shut down. Most of the people took off to Alabama to find more coal jobs.

It's only gotten worse in recent years, as far as the job market goes. There's little else for people to do.

A bunch of suicide stat charts, grey areas are where there's no data, but many are because there were none so none reported. This is usually due to places where there aren't any Blacks/Indians present. Apologies for Indian usage, still self-reported ethnicity for the majority of Native Americans, and that's what this chart uses. I don't know the proper term to use if it's an antiquated and vaguely offensive for an outsider to use but how most of a group refers to itself. Blame the maker of the chart, Bill Rankin, for doing it first.

Here's a thing that is lying to you with some extremely selective truth!
(http://i.imgur.com/QJmqBNN.png)

It compares the cheapest plan currently available, i.e. some total crap plan that covers basically nothing to the minimum standard that will be allowed. "Our pre-ACA dataset consists of the five least expensive plans (by monthly premium) for the most populous zip code in every county." If that's not enough trickery though, it assumes that all 27 year old men are single, healthy, and make over $59,500 per year.

edit: For the new prices, it also doesn't use real rates or even expected rates based on the real rates that have been revealed, but expected rates provided by health insurance companies from a few months ago. The real rates are all a whole lot lower. Lower than even Obama promised by at least 16%.

From top to bottom the three dips are WW2, the generation that should have been born to the generation that died in WW2, and the WW2 grandchildren coupled with USSR dissolution and the longterm economic recession that has occurred since they became capitalist. Average life expectancy is not yet back to the 1980s levels but is getting close.

Cities are less and less becoming a place where a median-income family can live. They are now more that you either are rich enough to live there or are poor enough that you rely on the meager safety net and have nowhere else you can go.

A map showing active fracking sites in Pennsylvania along with those that experienced violations. Statistically about one half of sites have a violation. There's a huge cluster of violators in my county.

That's a cool map, JRB. I work in the region for one of the companies listed, and theres some very good data there. That said, this:

Statistically about one half of sites have a violation.

...is incorrect. I know offhand the number of violating wells is MUCH less than this. Part of the confusion is inherent in how PA compiles violations. They explain it in the link you gave.

Quote from: NPR
The violations data are presented as released by the department, so some violations appear as duplicates because two enforcement actions can be associated with one violation in the department’s relational database.

Additionally, not all violations represent a massive ecological disaster. For instance, most of the violations I come across have to do with building a site slightly too large.

Quote from: NPR
The app used to track only producing (or “active”) wells. Recently, however, after realizing that several of the wells that were being drilled were not visible in our map, we changed that to also include the  wells DEP had issued permits for, but that weren’t aren’t yet producing.

Violations from wells that haven't been fracked yet are going to be very benign.

The production company data is really interesting, but the violation statistics are real iffy.

It's pretty neat that there's still remnants of the checkerboard land grants for the transcontinental railroads. When the transcontinental railroads were built, the government rewarded companies based on miles of track built, but to make sure that it didn't just result in a bunch of quick shoddy work, they also took all federal land within 40 miles of the track, split it into a checkerboard pattern of 1 mile by 1 mile squares, gave the railroad half and kept half.

Quote
My nomination is Patrick Sharkey's look at neighborhood poverty levels for blacks and whites. This is from his deeply troubling book, Stuck In Place. There is some sense — and the president has affirmed this — that racism is no longer a real threat to mobility, that it is now class. This is wrong. And Sharkey's chart is just one reason why. Basically it shows that huge swaths of black people live in neighborhoods with poverty levels that virtually no whites ever experience. And this finding has been consistent across post-Civil Rights history.

If you look at the chart, in the first generation, 62 percent of black people but only 4 percent of white people lived in neighborhoods where 20 percent or more of the people were poor. The numbers aren't much different in the second generation. And in both generations, only a third of black people live in neighborhoods with under 30 percent neighborhood poverty. Only 1 percent of all white Americans lived that way.

The chart basically mirrors something that most black people know intuitively. I was not raised poor. I had two parents. I never worried about food, clothing or shelter. The same could not be said of most of my friends. I was directly exposed to levels of violence that most white people of the same income as my parents rarely experience. I made out okay. A lot of black people did not.

So this idea that we can just change the subject and pretend that middle-class blacks and whites are, somehow, the same is erroneous. They aren't. Black people — regardless of class — live around way more poverty than even poor white people. Incidentally, this is also the reason one should be very skeptical when people say things like "controlling for income" or "controlling for class." For black people, class is racism. We should not be shocked by this. We've had some 350 years worth of policy with that exact goal. America is working as intended.

I don't know about that. I grew up in Pennsylvania and received perfectly fine sex education including  contraceptives and all the things Christians hate. I don't know that I'm willing to get outraged about states not passing all manner of laws about how descriptively we need to explain vaginas to high schoolers, until it's clear exactly how many of those states are actually serving kids poorly without the laws. Given how crazy american legislatures are wouldn't you rather they NOT legislate things explicitly?


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Metsfan on April 15, 2014, 06:03 pm
I think a lot of those laws are in place so specific counties can make sex ed curriculums as they see fit, rather than putting it in the hands of a statewide system. Hence why you (PA) and myself (VA) probably received decent sex ed courses. It wasn't up to your state, it was up to your county. And those laws are in place (or not in place) so dumb counties in the middle of bum fuck nowhere can cling to whatever pathetic bullshit of decency they feel like they have to cling to. It's pandering to right wing counties, that's it.

Why jump to that conclusion though? Why not assume that it's because the vaguer laws are working fine? The second and third maps in particular are bizarre to me.

I could make a map showing that zero European countries have laws explicitly prohibiting nonconsensual penetration by wildlife smaller than an antelope, but it's not because Europe is depraved but because other laws cover that eventuality, or because they feel they don't need to be that specific. Why do we need to be specific about the accuracy of HIV education if it's being presented accurately anyway? It's a bit of a fallacy is all.

Or you could make a properly analogous map that shows how many EU countries require sex education. Or you could make a map that shows which US counties take an active interest in medically accurate sex education. Those would be better for your argument than trying to relate the current maps to bestiality in order to hand-wave their message. It's a bit of a fallacy, is all.

Why jump to that conclusion though? Why not assume that it's because the vaguer laws are working fine? The second and third maps in particular are bizarre to me.

I could make a map showing that zero European countries have laws explicitly prohibiting nonconsensual penetration by wildlife smaller than an antelope, but it's not because Europe is depraved but because other laws cover that eventuality, or because they feel they don't need to be that specific. Why do we need to be specific about the accuracy of HIV education if it's being presented accurately anyway? It's a bit of a fallacy is all.

Or you could make a properly analogous map that shows how many EU countries require sex education. Or you could make a map that shows which US counties take an active interest in medically accurate sex education. Those would be better for your argument than trying to relate the current maps to bestiality in order to hand-wave their message. It's a bit of a fallacy, is all.

Your proposed map still doesnt address the problem with the originals, which is that they fail to adequately demonstrate a failure of actual sex education before being outraged about the legal aspects of it.  We dont need to compare with which EU countries require sex ed. Even though its apples to apples, it would be meaningless because we still dont even know if theres a problem with the apples in the first place.

This is exactly what conservatives do with voter ID law outrage.  Can you believe that most states dont have laws that guarantee that no voter ID fraud can occur???  Oh my god our democracy is at risk!  Only problem is that something like one thousandth of one percent of votes are even subject to fraud. Theyre disguising the lack of a problem with your presumption about fraud to persuade people who dont bother to question what theyre presented.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on June 05, 2014, 07:15 pm
That's almost certainly a sampling bias when you compare surveys with such a different methodology and goals. Global Drug Survey is a survey that does online surveys of people who are at least 18 years old, so despite the survey being n=79,430, their sample wound up being something like 3/4ths in their 20s or 30s, and 50% of their respondents reported going to a club (with bar/pub being a separate category than club) at least 4 times a year. Additionally 85% of their sample had used illicit drugs in their lifetime, 60% in the past year, which is above average.

The Global Drug Survey is about trying to find out what drugs are used most frequently among the populations most likely to use drugs, the frequency the various drugs are used, etc. It's not trying to get a representative sample of the full country's drug use.

What it is good at giving data on is stuff like this:
(http://i.imgur.com/solr8UR.png)

It also gives good data on things like value of drugs for the price. Cocaine users are the least satisfied with the cost of their drug vs. the pleasure they receive from it. MDMA users are the most satisfied with the cost of their drug vs. the pleasure they receive from it.

Orange areas will have a climate like this by 2050, and red by 2095.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread

Are they teaching multiplication in kindergarden now?  We did that in like 3rd grade.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on July 04, 2014, 06:37 pm
Yes. If you want kids to understand more complicated math later or get a better understanding of math, you start introducing them to things earlier. Spending a few weeks introducing multiplication in kindergarten saves more than just a few weeks when it's talked about in 1st grade, 2nd grade, and on. It's similar to how it takes no work at all for a 5 year old to learn a new language, but it's hard at 15, and harder still at 25.

Despite all the "kids these days" you hear, every few years things get a little bit more complicated and the total curriculum for a kids public education expands a bit. That forces things like multiplication to have an earlier explanation so that when it's done later in more depth they already have an understanding and the kids can handle it without being overloaded.

Look at the pattern of the graph to see how it's done. There is a pretty solid "right answer square for everything up to 5x5. There are 2 lines of "good at this" for multiplying by 1, 2, and 10. Other than that 5x is discussed but not in as much detail, and the rest they don't cover much at all.

(Bond chart)

When I did a chart for a Cracked contest last year, I came up with completely different numbers for the kills.

(http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd278/the_original_du_Man/BondChart_zps25deb422.png~original)

This big difference for Moore is whether or not you count the missile at the beginning of Octopussy (I think it kills about 35 bad guys, but it's been a long time since I counted).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlBUPtKIoHo

I think some people discount it since he didn't technically fire the missile himself. To my mind, it counts: he clearly guided it into that warehouse. Even without that, though, Moore gets in a lot more kills than they're giving him credit for - about 13.4/film on average.

That chart has Brosnan killing fewer than 20/film. That can't be right; by my count, his lowest kill count was 30 in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Craig's goes way up with Skyfall, though at 26, that one still only has the 7th-highest kill count for Bond.

A map about 200 CE travel times to Rome!
(http://i.imgur.com/UxNROzC.png)
Each contour is a week, each dot is a site which there is data on travel for. The data is then used to build the model which gives information on the places other than the specific sites there is data for. 14 modes of transit are modeled, based on what was known to be available in different areas, then the fastest one is picked to show the minimum time of traveling.

I think the most interesting thing of it is the time to England being slightly faster by river boats through Gaul and then across the Channel instead of all the way around.

That was my first thought, as far as I know (and I admit my knowledge is limited), that productivity line is pretty consistent with the timeline of computers and such being introduced into basically every field, increasing the potential productivity of individual workers, who, for the same amount of effort, can ramp up output.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on October 22, 2014, 01:44 am
OK, I guess you guys don't know what productivity means or you're bad at reading graphs.

Quote
Productivity - Labor productivity measures the amount of goods and services produced by one hour of labor. More specifically, labor productivity measures the amount of real GDP produced by an hour of labor. Growing labor productivity depends on three main factors: investment and saving in physical capital, new technology and human capital.

For example, suppose the real GDP of an economy is $10 trillion and the aggregate hours of labor in the country was 300 billion. The labor productivity would be $10 trillion divided by 300 billion, equaling about $33 per labor hour. Growth in this labor productivity number can usually be interpreted as improvements or rising standards of living in the country.
That's for all industries. If a retail clerk sells $100 worth of stuff in 1 hour, they had a productivity of $100. If a bartender sold $100 of beers in 1 hour, they had a productivity of $100. etc. It doesn't mean solely manufacturing jobs, which seems to be the confusion you guys have.

This data set here is normalized, whatever the productivity, hourly compensation, and hourly wage were in 1947 were set to 100 and then inflation-adjusted each year percent changes thereon. Until 1972, when a worker through improved techniques or fewer expenses or better automation, etc. increased productivity, things matched, 1% improvement in Productivity resulted in 1% improvement in compensation. In 1972, things stagnated, workers kept making more and more money through more sales, but their compensation flatlined. Starting in 1972, making 20% more for your company would average out making 0% more per year. And each year it gets worse, the companies continually make more money, but workers are not receiving more compensation.

The economic contribution that a worker makes for their company stopped being related to the pay the worker receives. If minimum wage labor economic contribution had kept up with productivity after 1972 as it has before then, the minimum wage fight wouldn't be over $10.10/hour, but over $25/hour. That's what companies could pay based on the contribution of a minimum wage worker. If that sounds like they would be losing money that's because it's more complicated than that, since that increased compensation would result in increased spending, resulting in being able to actually afford that. Furthermore right now healthcare programs, welfare programs, and food aid programs serve as a backdoor subsidy to those companies that pay such low wages for the economic contribution. That extra profit gets taxed and then spent on bringing minimum wage workers closer to a liveable standard.

The reason it hasn't kept pace is mostly due to globalization. IT workers have to compete not just with other American workers but people from Bangladesh who are willing to telecommute at odd hours for low pay for Americans but good for Bangladesh. It's the same across every field though, and it results in wealth concentrating to the richest people.

Turnout isn't finalized yet, so it's gonna take a few weeks for the full data to be finished, but 33.9% overall turnout is the initial estimate. Nearly every state is down in turnout, but from what I've read, turnout in states with new Voter ID laws seem to have had a larger drop in turnout from last midterm than those that did not on average.

(http://i.imgur.com/D3ySNWF.png)
The biggest drop in turnout though was in heavily blue states disillusioned with Obama and statewide parties that tried to run even more moderate than him. California saw a 22.6% drop in turnout from 2010 from 44% to 21.4%, Washington was even more dramatic, 53.1% in 2010 to 28% this year, a 25.1% drop in turnout.

Is it a thing that not everyone in the US has photo ID? Here, you need to register to vote, and the registration process involves getting a barcode in your ID book. On the day, that barcode is scanned, and your ID book checked


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on November 08, 2014, 04:51 am
Not everyone in the US has photo ID, no. 11% of eligible voters do not have the required photo ID demanded by these laws. Keep in mind that there is no national ID available to every citizen except the passport and that all attempts to create a national ID were literally stopped by people arguing about the ID being the mark of the beast from the Bible's Book of Revelations. There are 4 forms of photo IDs valid for these laws, usually, a passport, a military ID, a driver's license (issued by the state you're voting in), or a free voter's ID. They can not be expired and usually not within 3 weeks of expiration either.

Most US residents don't require a passport because they can't afford to travel internationally anyway and $165 plus the time to apply is prohibitive if you're not going to be travelling. Most US citizens are not active military personnel. People too poor to own a car or people who live in cities where they don't need one often do not have a driver's license, why spend a full day getting one then pay $50 for it if you don't need it.

So the last one, that free voter ID. More than 10 million eligible voters live more than 10 miles from the nearest ID-issuing office without a public transport option to get them there. More than 1 million eligible voters are minorities born in the South pre-1964 where they were barred from white hospitals and as such do not have a birth certificate so will likely never meet the documentation requirements for a free ID. Free ID-issuing offices have limited hours, Wisconsin for example only issues IDs from their offices 10am until 4pm on the 5th Wednesdays of a month. This year that meant they were open for only 4 days, in January, April, July, and October. To top this off, studies showed that the average voter obtaining a free voter ID required $106 in fees for reissuing documents.

Here's a map showing the percentage of counties that are black vs. ID-issuing offices and the number of hours per week these offices are open. Crosshatched areas are especially egregious areas.
(http://i.imgur.com/tquOdO0.png)

Same thing but in Texas showing percentage Hispanic vs. ID-issuing offices and number of hours per week these offices are open.
(http://i.imgur.com/nSSvwLL.png)

People who have out-of-state IDs can't vote, so an Ohio driver's license won't work to vote in Wisconsin, you'll need another form of ID. Your university photo ID won't work either, etc. it goes on and on. The types of IDs chosen are quite conspicuously things held less often by groups who tend to vote for Democrats. Gun license? That's valid for voting, counts as a photo ID even though there's no picture on it.

States have been actively blocking modernizing our registration and voter roll systems because these outdated systems we use make voting harder and take longer, and the harder it is to vote, the lower the turnout by the poor.

About a dozen classified Department of Defense missions, probably spy satellites, which had to be delivered to their orbits by NASA because there weren't any other rockets big enough to take them up except the Space Shuttle. There were earlier ones but the ones starting in 1988 the crews said were bigger and more dangerous than anything else they ever had to do.

ID stuff

Why can't a university ID work? Is it just too easy to fake, or something? My brother turned 18 shortly before the 2012 elections, didn't have any other form of ID, so he just went in and gave his high school card. As far as I know there were no problems.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Bettytron on November 09, 2014, 01:05 pm
I'm sure it depends on the university, but my ID didn't have my date of birth on it, and some people aren't yet 18 when they start school. And for people with limited ability to get a drivers license, state ID, or passport, a university ID is possibly even less accessible. Depending on your brother's state laws, it's possible that it was just up to the pollworker to accept his ID, and discrimination could play a factor in how that played out for other people as well.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on November 09, 2014, 02:48 pm
The university I work for immediately began using "qualifying" student id's with birthdays on for students when we were being threatened with an ID law in my state. Our law got overturned or is subject to an injunction or something, so at least for the time being it's moot, but still.

click for huge.

The origin of the word for slave in various languages. The most common is from the old Roman slave trade that they got from south Slavic groups selling members of captured neighboring tribes. I do like the Finnish/Estonian words for slave being "Aryan" as well.

Polish isn't on the key, but the direct translation of the parts are "nie" meaning not- or un-, "wol" meaning will or willing, and "nik" being -er as in a job title like teacher or waiter. So the word in Polish directly translates as someone who does work against their will.

I think the inexplicable part is pretty explicable just by looking-- people really like big and/or muscly working dogs. I was talking to a friend about this, and I feel like it has to do with the first time we see a dog and play with a dog is usually when we're really young, when all dogs seem huge, or at least bigger than they really are. I think there is probably an urge to recapture that subconsciously.

This is interesting, since apparently all the ones I would really like to own are terrible, and all the ones I really don't prefer are great. Huskies and Staffies are dumb? What.

From my anecdotal experience, the popularity of large muscly dogs that look like they eat children for breakfast is probably more of an identity thing, compensating for some of the owners' insecurities.

I don't know how they tested intelligence though. I'd guess it has something to do with trainability, since I've owned a basenji before and those fuckers are wily enough to escape from any yard you leave them in.

Intelligence is rated by trainability. A border collie can learn a new command in under 5 repetitions and will then obey the first time you give the command over 95% of the time. That makes them the smartest dog. The dumbest of dogs take 80-100 repetitions of a new command to learn what they are supposed to do and then will only obey the first time the command is given under 25% of the time.

I don't know dogs, so I don't know some of these dumb nicknames, I'm guessing a Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a staffy though, and those ones take 25-40 times repeating a new command to learn it, only obey a known command the first time it's given to them 50% of the time. That makes them ranked 49th of the dogs on that chart. A Siberian Husky is ranked 45th, basenji 79th.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on December 01, 2014, 03:00 am
It is genetic. Firstly, as jimbob points out, other countries did not do an ethnicity breakdown to show how communities descended from immigrants stack up. Secondly, even within countries there are differences among the entirely ingenious descendant populations, bigger dairy farming regions and more pastoral areas have a lot more milk drinking and therefore lactose tolerance. Finally, the majority of US white people are descended from North Germans, English, Irish, and Scandinavians, all groups which have a very high lactose tolerance. Look at Australia, the population there are mostly from Irish immigrants, and they are at 5% intolerance.

The European form of lactose tolerance which is also the central Asian form and most of the Indian subcontinent form is thought to have originated in Turkey 10,000 years ago and no one has any clue why it spread so well. There was a second form of lactose tolerance that originated in the Arabian peninsula, about 9,000 years ago that did not spread very well (may not have been necessary, in hot climates, milk turns to yogurt in as little as 3 hours, taking away over half the lactose with the change).  The final lactose tolerance mutation occurred in Niger about 6000 years ago.

That African one is the only one that has a known explanation for its rapid spread. Some tribes still operate as pastoral tribes in a way thought to be similar to how their ancestors would have. Those tribes carefully nurture their herd in times of drought and famine and use a sharpened reed to carefully bleed their animals into jugs of fresh milk to provide complete nutrition in those times. There are a lot of theories about other genes having rapid spreads, but none are fully explainable. There's an absolutely massive genetic pressure for the spread of lactose tolerance and no one has any idea why it was so preferred.

The main jump this year from April to June was the Amish outbreak, 400 contracted it. They self-quarantined which slowed the spread, then in May or so they began vaccinating. Hopefully they keep it up, there was never anything against vaccinations for them but they were so isolated it had never gotten into the community, but its risky having a fairly tight-knit community with only ~20% vaccination rate.

Preferred method of execution by state over time. Of note, Utah switched to preference for lethal injection in 1987 but anyone who was initially convicted before then was allowed to request which manner of execution they wanted, so Utah's last firing squad execution was in 2010. That was someone who had been convicted but had a long appeals process then the state tried to delay it a long time because they were worried that executing by firing squad would cause a backlash that would eliminate the death penalty. Eventually the state relented when they thought they would lose a court battle over it.

Least risky drug

I read that study after seeing it on the news. Their definition of risk is based solely on the ratio between the "typical use" and the LD50. There are serious logical problems with that rationale.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on February 26, 2015, 07:29 am
Let me clarify. Theres no logical problem with analyzing that factor as the likelihood of overdose on each drug. The logical problem is the media having jumped off from their and made charts generally calling alcohol the "most risky" on that basis.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Frogbone on February 26, 2015, 12:52 pm
I think a better way would probably be some sort of comparison between the rates of overdose, normalized by the general use of the drug among the population.  That would make the most sense to me.

Most common word in OK Cupid profiles, by state.

Why would Oil be the main thing on an OK Cupid profile? I mean, with OK and ND, I get it, because there's basically nothing else in those wastelands, but Texas really has nothing more important to talk about in OK Cupid than oil? Like, you know, Football? Cowboys? Texas?

I imagine it's a lot of dudes who work in oil fields and on oil rigs who are away a lot using internet for girlfriending/boyfriend etc.

Probably related to talking about work? ("work in the oil industry," oil change shop, etc.)


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on April 24, 2015, 03:48 pm
My guess is that oil industry workers are usually men, often single, usually 20-40 years old. It's most likely a thing of workers who grew up elsewhere, moved for work, and need to rely on OK Cupid more than other workers in the state.

The Farm states are probably people saying they are a farm boy or farm girl.

If the 2016 election were held with the same demographic voter turnout and same party preference, how the 15 closest races from 2012 would change.

These are both fairly large assumptions, but in essence, the 2016 presidential race will be Democrats encouraging turnout and Republicans suppressing turnout while also hoping to court either white Millenials or Latinos.

Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on August 19, 2015, 01:17 am
They will not come back, everything is orbiting the galactic center at a slightly different speed so things get close for a while then go away for much much longer. In about 1,360,000 years, Gliese 710 will pass 0.5-1 light years away, well inside that grey area on the bottom. It is 60% of solar mass and though it has no planets, any asteroids or comets orbiting it as well as anything in the Oort cloud it disrupts will cause a minor increase in cratering, 5-10% more impacts than normal for the next few tens of thousands of years.

VW isn't the only company that seems to have cheated emissions tests, when tested in realistic real world ways, other companies fail too, though not as badly, VW was failing by up to 40x the maximum level. This is how many times over the maximum emisisons level various model cars are.

The kind of ugly people that try online dating (a medium based mostly on pictures) are assholes with no self awareness that others don't want to be around? Attractive people would be more disposed to try to date through a medium mostly based on looks, so you get a wider variety of personalities.

Not sure where this one got its data but I can see an error. 1500 incorrectly puts Constantinople, Paris, Guar, Guangzhou, and Nanjing above Tenochtitlan. There shouldn't be the dot for Nanjing, the middle one on China's eastern coast and there should be instead a dot where Mexico City is today.

Looks like it's from Tertius Chandler's 1987 book Four Thousand Years of Urban Growth: An Historical Census. The population estimate was done with mostly historical accounts, so it can't really handle things where there weren't enough contemporary written records. Also the first comprehensive archaeological estimate for the population of Tenochtitlan when conquistadors showed up wasn't made until 2005, which is bizarrely recent.

This struck me as an especially odd way to draw a map. Why not just use a map? This makes it seem like New York isn't anywhere near the Atlantic Ocean, Louisiana borders Oklahoma, Idaho is on the west coast... just a weird choice.

I would actually be willing to bet that it's as much a social norms and social stigma issue vs a lack of access issue. There are an awful lot of uncontrolled variables in this proposed correlation.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: spermus on March 08, 2016, 11:34 am
The time correlation lower in the article seems to narrow it down to the laws.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Johnny Roastbeef on March 08, 2016, 12:14 pm
I don't know, it is currently trending down. Wouldn't you expect that it would stay high if it was due to laws being enacted? Maybe it was related to the significant financial crisis that began around the same time that the laws went into effect. Maybe it was just people curious after reading news coverage of the new laws (I just searched it after this article).

I'm not getting into any further argument about it. All I'm saying is that this type of extraction of trends from unrelated data is basically the hardest all types of research to do well. It's also, maybe more than any other type of research, easily influenced by confirmation bias. I think we all want to see the connections in data (or lack thereof) that we want to see, and that's evidenced alone by my own hesitancy to accept this conclusion. Newspaper websites aren't peer-reviewed though, so at the moment we have no further expert opinion to fall back on.

I think it's generally wise to take a grain of salt with anything that seems to prove a partisan point. Whether that's justified in this particular case, I can't say.

I don't know that anyone thinks it's a versus-type situation. It's not like social norms and stigmas don't impact legal access.

Americans born between 1981 and 1997. Includes full population in that, including people unemployed, working part time, etc.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: CatAstrophe on March 26, 2016, 02:06 pm
Not quite as bleak but still not great. Hopefully the number is pulled down more by people born between 1992-1997 who are still in school and thus not working full time, but I doubt it.

The actual answer from the source on why the mountain states have so much suffocation is that health insurance uses absurdly broad categories with a lot of sub-categories to track trends and this is only looking at main categories. All of the mountain states there are Suffocation: Hypoxia. They are all low oxygen caused by altitude.

All opiates, heroin and fentanyl are the main killers these days, IIRC, but overprescription of opiates is the cause, and it was done with just white US residents to show that it's not anything income-based since it's not happening at all in other countries. Bizarrely, racism causes black people to be underprescribed medicine and coupled with the US doctor obsession with giving everyone opiates, it evens out to actual responsible opiate prescription among the US black population.

source: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/04/science/neanderthals-dna-homo-sapiens-human-evolution.html?_r=0

More evidence that humans made it out of sub-Saharan Africa 200,000 years earlier than previously expected. The last one was that about 5 weeks ago, evidence was announced of modern humans having made it to Morocco.

There is now evidence that modern humans made it to Europe around 270,000 years ago and bred with Neanderthals. Eventually all Neanderthal mitochondrial DNA was replaced with modern human mitochondrial DNA. So the mitochondrial DNA for Neanderthals older than 270,000 years ago does not have any continuity with the mitochondrial DNA after. Amazingly cool.

The original source seems to be this report (https://www.voterstudygroup.org/reports/2016-elections/political-divisions-in-2016-and-beyond). The data is based on a set of twelve multiple choice questions, and each dot represents a single respondent. This is also a cool figure:

Sanders supporters' views on #1, #3, and #5 are exactly what you'd expect, but they also seem to drift to the Trump side on #6 and #8, which I'm guessing has to do with demographics

1911 must have been one of the biggest years for civil rights in america, then?? surely it has SOMETHING to do with the fact that most veterans would be 60-70 years old at the time, therefore all dying.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: fermun on August 16, 2017, 06:49 pm
The interpretation that they are about hate, not heritage is the mainline historical perspective, btw.

Between 1885 and 1908, every single former Cofnederate state rewrote its constitutrion to include provisions restricting voting rights with poll taxes, literacy tests, and felon disenfranchisement.

1896 is when Jim Crow laws are declared constitutional. The era of lynching began just afterwards. There were hundreds of black people being lynched every year in the era that those veterans would be 60-70 years old.

Kentucky has under 10% of their civil war monuments dedicated to the Union despite never leaving the Union and having 90,000 Union volunteers vs. 30,000 Confederate volunteers.


Title: Re: Charts and Graphs thread
Post by: Frogbone on August 17, 2017, 03:22 am
I think the most damning bit is how it starts to be all about schools right after Brown. I'd suspect the big spike is more of a response to the anti-lynching movement and blacks gaining political power, since it comes after lynchings had already peaked (https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Jti122OK_BM/WBdvJ_iOsOI/AAAAAAAAAUI/0KryQ5NWgd4KB-PqP-paBsVLRv0HR3lmgCLcB/s1600/Total%2BLynching%2BOvertime.png). It certainly doesn't coincide with Confederate heroes dying; Stonewall died during the war in 1863, Lee died in 1870, and Jefferson Davis in 1889.

On a side note, I've been to the Finn's Point monument in New Jersey, and I found it pretty tasteful. Keep that one.
