'Species' can refer to any different varieties of (something). Between that and the bit about 'tracers,' I want to say it has to do with fallout, radioactive elements in the air.

Alright, so it's hard to represent four types of data in one graph, and granted, this is a very creative way of doing it, but it's so unscientific that there's no point in making it. Where does the trunk end and the branches begin? Do the branches count as the trunk or the leaves? Why use such a tiny color spectrum? Leaves turn red too, I can see color pretty well but I can barely tell the difference between any of the continents/years.

And disregarding all that, we can't see any goddamn numbers. This isn't a pie chart where ratios are inferred. gently caress this poo poo. Do it well or don't do it at all.

edit: if there was a starker contrast between points it would be more excusable

It's perfectly obfuscating, the only thing you can tell is that the weird index trees have all grown in the last 25 years & Europe had a head start in the trunk area, which is so obvious it's idiotic to even mention.

There's no way to compare anything. You'd think it was on purpose, really.

Those two sides of the graph have an overlapping population though so of course the numbers are relationally inverse. The population born in the state is a static number. The current population is both people born in state and people moving to the state.

As natural born people emigrate, the percentage of people that moved to the state goes up, even if no new people are moving there.

The graph makes it seem like natural born Nevadans are fleeing a state overrun by state immigration, but the immigration percentage could just be inflated by people fleeing the heat or politics or any other reason to leave Nevada.

New York State generally has a problem of educating people relatively well and then not having jobs for them to work in post graduation, leading them to leave to Texas, California, etc. Just ask most State legislators.

The solution, of course, is to reduce the quality of education so it all evens out.

Of course, there's also this:

Gus, don't be a rabid porcupine.

I'm prepared to feel dumb about this, but shouldn't that state graph have each state add up to 100% anyway? Any resident of any state either was or was not born there and yet no state is a rounding error from it.

Basically I really don't know how 86% of a population was born elsewhere but also half of that same population was born in Nevada and still there. I could see foreign immigration making up a difference if 100% wasn't reached but this poll accounts for 133% of Nevada's population somehow.

The state is made up of 100 parts. 86 parts were born elsewhere.

14 parts were born in state. However, those 14 parts were part of a generation that totalled 29 parts. 15 parts moved away. If they were still there, the state would be made up of 115 parts and the percentage of out-of-staters would decrease.

That makes way more sense, thanks. The wording on the right half in regards to the wording of the left half should have been a clue. Still an awful way of displaying that info. If only there was a thread for those

To be fair, I've always considered that stuff the hallmark of a disturbed mind.

Let's hold an idea shower to get a helicopter view and square this circle so we can shift the paradigms without cascading nonrelevant information into our blue sky thought space and see if we can't make the new quo wash its own face.
