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
# members count
slices <- c(5, 3, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1) 
# labels
lbls <-   c("Computational Science /\n Informatics", "Biochemistry", "Chemistry", "Physics", "Engineering", "Mathematics", "Biology" )
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")
