Of course I could tested more sequential color scales and possibly found a more distinguishable one (I mostly tested scales with blue and purple hues).Also, while age is a numerical variable and therefore should be displayed with a sequential color scale, one could argue that age group is a categorical variable. I could labeled the age groups as children (= under 18 years), young adults (= 18 24 years), prime working age (= 25 49 years), middle age (= 50 64 years) and the elderly (+64 years), all of which are categorical values.I think the term that more accurately describes that is “discrete binning”, which would still require a sequential (but discrete) palette ;). Personally, I would argue that the five age groups could be represented by a sequential palette, and the two alternate (“no data” and “decreased in all age groups”) could have been two separate colors not on the spectrum.But I think the fact that you played around with it is a testament to the effort you put in, and if you made the specific choice to use a categorical palette because no other palette suited you, I can jive with that.Sub point: If your family is held hostage and your ransom is to make a pie chart, do the courtesy of direct labeling to spare readers from having to refer to a key.

For a long time, finding fresh drinking water out in the wilderness was a chore you either had to bring along purification packets, or else boil what water you could find and then wait on it to cool before drinking it. Not anymore. Since the bottle incorporates the company’s award winning technology, it removes 99.9999% of bacteria and nearly all waterborne parasites, and is good for up to 1,000 liters of water or far more than you’ll be drinking on a single hike.
