@jboxman the survey-data-dictionary.md doesn't actually have all the questions. I missed more than a couple questions when I created it. You can either check the survey-questions.txt document, or my soon-to-be updated version of the data dictionary for the questions.

@akash-goswami welcome and thanks for the nice comment :)
I just want to clean up the code a bit and make the layout responsive before I push it to github. Hopefully I can get that done today

@krisgesling can you please wait for a little bit? I have some great ideas about your visualization, but didn't find any time to right you about it. I will do it today!

@SamAI-Software hey I'm always happy for more ideas, and will try to incorporate whatever I have time for.
@akash-goswami got it done, it's on github now if anyone wants to fork it for another map https://github.com/krisgesling/FCC-Gender-Map

@SamAI-Software perhaps we should update your control page with a link to @krisgesling repo?

@krisgesling ok, lets get started :)
I've been working as UX designer for a few years and what I've learned during that time is that we should always tell users a story from A to Z, step by step, fulfilling their basic need/expectations first and only then taking care of special features.
Your gender visualization is great! But it doesn't look like a beginning of a journey, does it?

Just imagine that you land a website of FCC Survey 2016 for the first time and you never saw it before. What do you want to know first? Probably it's something like:

  • Where all these respondents come from?
  • Is it a survey from USA only?
  • Does this survey include ppl from all other the world?
  • How many ppl (in percentage terms) are from Europe, Asia, Africa, your own country?

And your previous version was very good for that! Of course you will want to know about gender, too, but it's probably the next step.

So anyway we will need to have a country breakdown at least by CountryLive and Age. Somebody can do it from your forks, or you can do it yourself and that would be a great contribution to the project and also you will be featured even more (I'm pretty sure, that @evaristoc will take care of that :+1: )

If you decide to create it yourself, then I have one cool idea for you! Check out stackoverflow's survey the first Geography section has a map, but there are also 3 buttons, which can switch 3 different maps! That's a great feature, but a weak implementation, because all their 3 maps looks almost the same.
I suggest us to take this feature, but make a better implementation!
You can extent your visualization, so it will show us:

  • Amount or respondents (by default)
  • Gender (switch with a button)
  • Age (switch with a button)

Until you make a decision, I have reserved Demographics section for you FreeCodeCamp/2016-new-coder-survey#41
