really crappy charting, imo. Might be better to do it by county but not much. Better to show why some locales are more prone than others; access to vaccines, climate, etc.
Charting the known cases is easy. But what you want is an epidemiological study, with multiple factors, and that's a tad harder (and needs funding).

No doubt you'll soon post some such stunning map, I have faith in you… :wink:
At least yours is better than this one

And it's bisecting a rectangle, not a square, so it's not even 45 degrees.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

The Y-axis scale is the same as the X-axis scale, so the chart should have been set up as a square.

How do they determine who is an "adherent"?

Actual church attendance?

I thought that this one might actually be "food for thought":

Basically electricity demand in the US has been pretty much flat for the last decade. Although there is a dip in '09 that corresponds to a dip in GDP.

https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environm ... -utilities
Thanks to a combination of greater energy efficiency, outsourcing of heavy industry, and customers generating their own power on site, demand for utility power has been flat for 10 years, and most forecasts expect it to stay that way. The die was cast around 1998, when GDP growth and electricity demand growth became “decoupled”

The asterisk on USA 1920 is a big one.

Women in most states already had the right to vote. 1920 was the constitutional amendment requiring states to allow women to vote.

The very first before any of those on the map: Women were voting in Wyoming since 1869.
