Stacked bar chart


Different from a grouped bar chart with arranged columns side-by-side, a stacked bar chart displays a part-to-whole relationship among categories within various groups. The columns are therefore divided into smaller segments, making the relation to the whole more explicit. Because the bars visually aggregate all categories, this chart is ideal to highlight the differences between the total of each group.

Create a sophisticated stacked bar chart, choosing between a vertical or horizontal view. You can disable axes and legends, making the whole layout more minimal and cleaner.

PS: 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.
