Stacked Bar Charts

Stacked bar charts, or stacked columns, are data visualizations best used for showing the relationship of individual items to the whole – comparing the contribution of each value to a total across categories. They are especially useful when real estate is limited.

Stacked bar charts are one of many types of data visualizations used to organize and present data in a way the audience can understand and take action on. To ensure visualizations have real business value, it’s important to know which types of visualizations are best suited for a given data set.
