# I need help with a Venn diagram. :(

And you guys are smart.

I am classifying people according to 4 attributes. Each person has at least 2 and as many as 4. Total # of possible permutations is 10, though the data set only uses 8.

If the attributes are A, B, C, and D, the data set is:

ACD (1)

AD (4)

AC (1)

ABCD (3)

ABD (2)

BC (2)

BD (3)

BCD (1)

I found this venn diagram for a set of 4, but it doesn't really apply, since the outermost regions (representing a single attribute) don't apply at all in this case.

Yeah. I have the table as a backup. And I can do totals, too (A total = 11, B=11, C=8, D=14, but it doesn't add up to the total N=17 because some of the categories overlap).

I managed to get one of our visual designers working on it, so maybe they can make some magic happen. In the meantime, I have teh 4-ellipses as a placeholder. It doesn't look too bad, though, as you say, it's not exactly something they can glance at and immediately discern what is going on.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if we killed it entirely and just went with the table.

Thankfully, it's not due until midday Tuesday, so there's a little bit of time to ruminate.
