Grouped Bar Charts

Grouped Bar Charts example of possible use

Grouped (butted) bar charts are great for showing comparisons of items within categories and then showing the the comparisons for the categories. Like all bar charts, the grouped bar chart also shows ranking. The top bar in the top butted category usually sets the ranking. If the categories are comprised of years or other nonranked data, this rule does not apply.

Any bars that share a baseline should also be the same unit. Avoid mixing, for example, percentages and quantities on the same baseline.
