I wish that you hadn't truncated the y axis in the "Cause Identified as Near-Top Priority" graph. Truncating the y-axis makes the graph much more misleading at first glance.

Huh, I didn't even notice that either. Thanks for pointing that out. I agree that it's misleading and we can fix it.

I didn't notice that when I first read this. It's especially easy to mis-read because the others aren't truncated. Strongly suggest editing to fix it.
