Bar Chart

Bar charts can be created vertically or horizontally, depending on which axis is defined first.

They can be stacked (this is the most common method) or normalised (where each bar fills 100%, and colours within the bar show ratios). Overlapping row view is technically an option, but will likely not show meaningful representations of the data in most cases.

Basic guidance can be found on the Chart Overview page.

The primary axis can be alpha-sorted in ascending or descending order.

Colour views & facets


If your colours are not showing as expected, there may be a misinterpretation of the data type. Check the Colour Menu and change the Data Type from Auto to another option.
