What is a Marimekko chart

A Marimekko chart will help you to display proportions over a pair of variables. At first glance, a Marimekko chart looks similar to a 100% Stacked Bar Graph. However, unlike in a stacked bar plot, in a Marimekko chart, both the heights and the widths of each segment are variable with a percentage scale. Marimekko charts are best used with smaller datasets because they become hard to read when there are many segments. They are a great choice when you want to give a more general overview of the data. Whenever you have data in which categories overlap, it is best to show how they relate to each other. This chart is also known as a Mosaic Plot or Mekko chart.

How to create a Marimekko chart
  1. Open Vizzlo and create a new Marimekko chart.
  2. Select the data that you want included in the Marimekko chart.
  3. Be sure to include the column and row headers, which will become the labels in the Marimekko chart.
  4. Give your chart a name. Click on the chart title at the top of the graph and the section becomes editable.
  5. Decide where to place the Markimekko chart vertically or horizontally.
  6. Export your chart as PNG, high-quality PDF or embed it into PowerPoint or Google Slides.
