Our younger generations are all progressive about gender roles. Also they are huge liars.

There's a flaw in that graph.

It shows what people of various ages are doing now, not what people of the older age did when they were the younger age.

Also, it asks do they do *more* than their partner. If it said "as much as", would the graph show different results?

It asked more likely/less likely, which I think teases out the actual reality.

Also I believe these reflect lifelong roles. Also I am a counter-example. I am in the 55+ category and I now do more of these things than my partner. In all earlier ages I would have done less.

If they say "time to clean" and then you both clean about the same, does that mean they do more because they initiated the cleaning and you would have happily lived in the filth for at least a few more months?

Scandinavian women are finding better things to try, when they spread their wings, so delay motherhood until they find out how bad the alternatives are.

There are maps of each region, and a map of the world showing, the oldest business in each country that has continuously operated and when it started.

However the large map shows Kongo Gumi in Japan as the oldest in Japan and the world founded in 578... no, I didn't leave out a number, over 1400 years. Kongo Gumi got caught up in Japan's easy money/low interest era and borrowed to buy overpriced properties used as collateral. When the real estate bubble popped and values nosedived they couldn't handle the debt and went belly up in 2006 becoming a subsidiary of Takamatsu Corp.

"I don't believe an X can be elected President." via the Economist

Americans waaaaaay overestimate voters' prejudices against women and minorities.



Basically, for the red and blue dots, Rs and Ds were asked "Would America vote for a Presidential candidate who is X?" For the grey dots, everyone was asked "Would you vote for a candidate who was X?" Both sides are prone to believe other people will not support the minority identity.

Democrats are particularly prone to this – which ironically makes them less likely to support female or minority candidates due to concerns about electability.

Basically stated, we hate each other more than we hate people of identities, which is not very much, despite us believing that we do.

"Over age 70" polls extremely low. Isn't it grand the choices we have left?

This is a very interesting graph. Thanks for sharing it.
