OPIG Members Background

Oh, did I mention we like pies? And cake? Lots of cake… And we also like computer code; so here is the R which generated the above beaut.

# Pie Chart with Percentages
# OPIG members count, 2016
slices <- c(1, 2, 6, 1, 6, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1)
# labels
lbls <- c("Statistics", "Mathematics", "Physics", "Chemical Physics", "Chemistry",
          "Pharmacology", "Biochemistry", "Biological Sciences", "Bioinformatics",
          "Software\nEngineering", "Computer\nScience")
pct <- round(slices/sum(slices)*100)
lbls <- paste(lbls, pct) # add percents to labels 
lbls <- paste(lbls,"%",sep="") # ad % to labels 
# save to file
# do the magic
pie(slices, labels=lbls, col=rainbow(length(lbls)), main="OPIG Members Background")
