Part of series: DD017 – Data-Driven Chart 017 Donut Charts
Donut charts are simply a way of stacking pie charts. They provide a more readily interpretable presentation of a few pie charts. The only drawback is that they are hard to label. The series example gives a good option for labeling, which uses leader lines and does not obscure any of the data-driven segments.
Unlike most of PowerPoint's other data-driven formats, we advocate the use of border lines around the segments. These border lines make it possible to quickly identify each "pie chart."
