What is a stacked bar chart?

A stacked bar chart displays a part-to-whole relationship among categories within various groups. The columns representing the groups are divided into smaller segments, making the proportions and relationship of the categories to each group explicit. Because the bars visually aggregate all categories, this graph is ideal for highlighting sharp differences of composition, and is particularly useful to compare the total values across groups of data.

The stacked bar chart is widely used in financial reports and other corporate settings to show proportions as well as absolute values, this can be particularly interesting if you want to compare different departments, or visualize growth and its different factors.

How to make a stacked bar chart with Vizzlo?

Make a sophisticated stacked bar chart with ease:

  • On the tab “DATA” of the sidebar, click on the “CATEGORIES” button to name your series and define their colors.
  • Then select a column to edit it using the active cards on the sidebar; or use the spreadsheet to quickly enter your data.
  • Finally, explore the customization options of the “APPEARANCE” tab to choose your display preferences.

Pro tip: If there is no part-to-the whole relationship or if you want to emphasize the comparison of the individual categories, consider creating a grouped bar chart.
