Regarding option D, it is simply a grab cue (surface texture), it doesn't imply any matrix layout.

comment Chart drill-down affordance?
For classic bar charts and charts with basic labels I agree that hyperlinks are a great idea. We run into problems when the labels are shown on a 45 degree angle (as is the case when many bars appears and the labels are long). Also, some of our visualizations (such as bubble scatter plots) don't have labels.

comment How to best label age group boundaries?
Just the clarify the purpose of this UI - it's part of a workforce analytics application (Business Intelligence) - the user would be an executive, line manager, or HR business partner studying their workforce demographics. We take in customer employee records and provide analytics such as demographics, staffing, etc. In this case, the user might be looking at employee Turnover broken up across company tenure or employee age buckets. Such a view would allow someone to see if most of the people leaving the organization are of low tenure or of a specific age group.

Sorry, the filtered bucket will be showing 2-2.999. Nonetheless, my comment still stands - the count for the 2-3yr bucket will be different with the filter applied (showing 2-2.999 with filter vs. the 2-3.999 sans-filter)

I also agree that option A is best. However, another big point of confusing is when setting a filter of 'less than'. For example, saying filter on 'less than 3yrs' means you will only see the age buckets for <1yr, 1yr, 2-3yrs. However, the 2-3yrs bucket value will be different than the one you see without the filter because sans-filter the 2-3yrs bucket shows 2-3.999yrs while with the filter it will be reduced to only showing 2-3.0yrs
