Nick,

The life expectancy data was a bad example to illustrate my problem.
I work with household survey data and want to use stacked bar charts
to show how people move through different stages in life (say,
education, work, and retirement). The -over- category is age cohort
and the y-axis shows the percentage of people in the different
groups. The sum of these percentages is always 100.
