Ehm ... where exactly do you see a "random" order?

    I guess what I mean is that I'd rather have the result percentage in descending order as opposed to what was voted for in order. Take Company Size. I'd rather see the right-hand column in order, desc and the actual company sizes out of order so it's easier to see at a glance which one is highest, and which one lowest.

    Sort on the "2018 statistics/Percentage" column essentially.

    Note I'm just being pedantic, I'm not really complaining here. I am colour blind, so following the pretty charts is quite difficult for me so data is always more important than graphs ;)

      I'm color blind too, and the sorting of the donut chart is really confusing some times (took me awhile to identify the second most editor Emacs there*)

      But most percentage tables are sorted by descending numbers of the 2018 results, you might get confused by the 2017 results which are listed first.

      Some questions had a "natural" sorting - like the company size you mentioned - and I think that's a matter of taste.

      This could only be solved by offering dynamic sort buttons in JS.

      *) the sort order might reflect some bias here. I remember reading about weird results in US census because of different sorting of the choices.
