Chart of the day

Just came across this chart on Twitter, and it reminded of of this quote

“It would be nice if all of the data which sociologists require could be enumerated because then we could run them through IBM machines and draw charts as the economists do. However, not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” (William Bruce Cameron)

This is on page 13 of his 1963 book “Informal Sociology: A Casual Introduction to Sociological Thinking”.
