visualizing public participation in various arts activities

Success...sort of. I found some data on the U.S. Census Bureau derived from various reports published by the National Endowment for the Arts. Not exactly the kind of information I was looking for (what I'm interested in is the rise of M.F.A. programs in the U.S. over the last century), but I wanted to get something to play with. And even this is just a portion of the data, which, in addition to male/female comparisons, is broken down further by race & ethnicity, age, education, and income. There's probably a really dynamic way of getting that all into one visualization, but I wasn't sure how. I like the animation that happens when you switch from male to female and back again. Anyway, I'll keep playing with it, and perhaps I'll get some comments that will give me some clues. This is fun, though; I could see spending a lot of time on Many Eyes.
