Benefits & pitfalls

Benefits & pitfalls: 100% stacked bar chart

  • 100% stacked bar-charts can mislead users into thinking the data values represented by the different bars are the same (as the heights of the bars are 100%). This needs to be made clear on the visualisation.

Benefits & pitfalls: pie chart

  • Pie charts are often criticised. Comparing the size of pie segments can be difficult, and many visualisation experts suggest that bar-charts should be used instead.
