What is a donut chart?
A donut chart (or doughnut chart) is a circular graphic whose total ring area corresponds to 100%. Like in pie chart, each of its slices represents a proportional relationship of parts to a whole.
Because of its resemblance to the widespread pie chart, your audiences will understand a donut chart effortlessly. Indeed, the donut chart is even easier to read: since its center is empty, it is not necessary to compare the angles and the sizes of the whole ‘slices,’ shifting the focus only to the arcs’ length.
