Proportional Symbol Map

For this map, the only element imported from ArcMap was the shape file of Wisconsin.  Everything else in the map was created manually in Adobe Illustrator.  Also done manually were the calculations of the sizes of each circle.  After obtaining data from the census bureau, the data was plugged into an excel formula which set the maximum value in the dataset at 100% and listed each other data value as a proportion of the maximum value.  This information was used in the scale tool in Illustrator to accurately proportion the symbols.
