The constants (vs, lw, and es) may need tweaking for specific monitors and
operating systems, but this seems a bit simpler:
labelRates = {"14.9 %", "10.3 %", "9.2 %", "7.0 %", "5.4 %", "4.0 %",
"2.4 %", "1.9 %"};
rates = ToExpression@StringReplace[labelRates, " %" -> ""];
n = Length@rates;
labelEarnings = {"$23,088", "$32,552", "$37,024", "$39,884",
"$53,976", "$66,144", "$83,720", "$80,600"};
earnings =
ToExpression@StringReplace[labelEarnings, "$" | "," -> ""];
labels = {"Some high school,\nno diploma", "High school graduate",
"Some college,\nno degree", "Associate degree",
"Bachelor's degree", "Master's degree", "Professional degree",
"Doctoral degree"};
vs = 3.8; (* vertical scale *)
lw = 17; (* label width *)
es = 4000; (* earnings scale *)
max =
Max@earnings;
Graphics@{Transpose@{Range@n, labelRates, rates, labels, earnings,
labelEarnings} /. {k_, lr_, r_, l_, e_,
le_} :> {Text[lr, {-r - lw/5, vs (k + .25)}], Pink,
Rectangle[{-r, k vs}, {0, vs (k + .5)}], Black,
Text[l, {lw/2, vs (k + .2)}], Green,
Rectangle[{lw, k vs}, {lw + e/es, vs (k + .5)}], Black,
Text[le, {lw*1.25 + e/es, vs (k + .25)}]}, {Black, Opacity[0.5],
Line@{{0, vs}, {0, vs (n + .5)}},
Line@{{lw, vs}, {lw, vs (n + .5)}}}}
