Range Plot

A range plot is a great choice if you want to highlight the difference between two values rather than the values itself.

Range Plot example: Gender earnings disparity
Range Plot example: Global City Population
Range Plot example: Libiamo, ne‘ lieti calici
Range Plot example: Tour de France

What is a range plot

A range plot displays two or more quantitative values for different categorical items. Typically, the chart displays exactly two values connected by a segment for each category. The chart therefore focuses on the difference, i.e. gap between the values which is represented by the size of the segment.

Color attributes are used to highlight the different categorical grouping. The chart is also know as dumbbell chart, connected dot plot chart, or barbell chart.
