Lots of data, but hard to understand. The problem lies in the display. Doesn't readily lead one to comprehend which component is wealthy or which is poor.

Bill, did you click on the link that says "Pew Forum" so you can see the chart full size?

Each bar represent 100% of adherents to a particular religious group. Each bar is divided into five segments representing each of the five income brackets given in the key. For instance, 47% of Black Church adherents 42% of Jehovah Witnesses make less than $30,000 a year. Meanwhile, 46% of Jews and 43% of Hindus make more than $100,000 a year. I just tells you about the income distribution of groups compared with each other.
