Market share is written above the graphic. Share. But the graphic shows absolute numbers. One on top of the other. Did you realize it? Christians lose share. A little. Muslims win share. A lot. Other lose share. A whole lot.

Better show shares in a different way. For example like this. As a small multiple.

Marktanteile der Religionen als Small Multiple. Redesign: ich.

Now you find in the graphic what is written above the graphic.
