How long is the average dissertation?

Average dissertation

As I’m still struggling with my graduate paper, I found this very interesting graphic from a WordPress blog. The blogger himself was also procrastinating on his own dissertation. So when people asked him  how many pages he left, he was not sure how to answer. Therefore he did these time-consuming graphics to procrastinate his paper again! But it is very interesting to see the result of his research in this way.

The only thing I don’t like about this graphic is that there is no key. I don’t really understand what the length of the bar, the line and the dot stand for.
