Bar and column charts

Use a bar or column chart to compare specific categories or values.

TIP: Hovering over the chart displays more precise data.

Best practices

  • Works best for small numbers of data series.
    For a larger number of comparisons, consider using multiple charts.
  • Use stacked columns to illustrate the parts that make up a group.
  • Use a guide to group data items or separate charts for each data group.

Example: Bar chart with text categories
