Framework: DD004 – dd004_v02

dd004_v02

This is a basic subdivided bar chart. But instead of using a legend, the category labeling is above the segments of the top bar. This is actually the preferred method presenting data, but sometimes the small size of the segments make space a problem. It's always kinder to provide all of the information necessary to understand the chart within the chart instead of making the audience search out keys and legends.

Series Keywords: stacked bar chart, data-driven, flag charts, segments, subdivided bars

Subdivided (stacked) bar charts contain bars that are broken into segments to equal the total - the number at the end of and outside the right-most segment. These charts show comparisons between the segment categories as well as between the overall totals of each subdivided bar.

The values within the segments show up automatically when the data is entered into the worksheet. The totals need to be calculated and added manually. The labels need to be added manually. Refer to the tutorial and FAQs for guidance on how to use and format these types of charts. Specifically, refer to this FAQ regarding adding more/deleting labels and totals. Also, look at each framework's description to understand the different uses for these charts.
