I'm looking for a graphing program that handles Venn Diagrams exceptionally well. I would like to have diagrams built where the set sizes and overlap sizes are properly set based upon the data. Most Venn Diagrams I see have uniform circle and overlap sizes which of course do not properly convey the data.

I think the non-metrical aspect of Venn diagrams is a feature, not a bug. Consider the following three sets: A is the set of rational numbers, B is the integers, and C is the even integers. Clearly A contains B, which contains C. To say that in set-speak, B and C are subsets of A, and C is a subset of B. A Venn diagram can convey these relationships quite clearly, even though all three sets have an infinite number of members. If you're interested in showing quantitative relationships among groups, I suspect there's a better model to use. What kinds of things are you displaying?

New book on Venn diagrams, very favorable review in Nature (22 July 2004):

Here's what you were looking for, perhaps. You just have to download and unzip it . The .exe file is a simple program that produces a quantitative Venn. It only has room for two sets unfortunately, but it's still very useful.
