Despite UCS efforts to increase visibility and student involvement, polling detected apathy

This graphic visualizes inter- and intra- genre preferences among respondents to the fall 2012 poll conducted by UCS and the BCA surveying interest in acts for Spring Weekend. The size of each genre's exterior band represents the total number of votes received by that genre in the poll. The connecting segments represent shared tastes between genres. The width of each of the segments is proportional to the total number of votes the corresponding genre received among voters of the source genre.

This interactive visualization displays the data for concentrations completed at Brown from 1984 to 2012, obtained by The Herald from the Office of Institutional Research.

The visualization starts in the “line” mode, which plots each concentration with a solid line.

The “area” mode stacks the data, allowing you to see more clearly trends involving related concentrations. 

The thickness of a colored band in a given year is proportional to the number of degrees completed in the concentration that year.  

In both modes, click on the name of a concentration once to see the data for that concentration alone. Click on it a second time to see all the data. If you hover over the concentration name, its line will remain highlighted. 

Click on checkmarks for multiple concentrations to see those concentrations together.
