Stacked Column Charts
Stacked bar charts are used to compare categorical data.
The columns' lengths are a good visual for comparison. The chart below displays the comparison among the top 10 energy producer countries in terms of nuclear and renewable energy. The data on the x-axis represents the countries, and the data on the y-axis display the percentage of different energy produced for each country.
Good to know
- Stacked column charts, like the stacked bar charts, work great with categorical data.
- Stacked column charts are an excellent choice for restricted screens such as phones and tablets, as you can fit a lot of data vertically and users can scroll up and down to get insights.
- Usually stacked column charts are restricted to categorical data only (not versatil chart type).
