Diversity in STEM - graphic display

Chad Orzel pointed out an article about diversity in the STEM workforce, mainly to complain justifiably about the graphic. I posted a comment at #6 suggesting an improvement to the way he displayed the data and decided to actually do it. Since there is no way to include graphics in comments, I'll post a link to this blog entry.

This is basically inverted from the one Chad posted, so the largest population group (as of 2010) is at the top, and aligned at the boundary between white males and hispanic males. The result allows you to compare white and non-white populations as well as see gender differences within each demographic group.
