What is Stacked Columns?

Stacked columns, or stacked bar charts, are data visualizations best used for showing the relationship of individual items to the whole – comparing the contribution of each value to a total across categories. They are especially useful when real estate is limited.

Stacked columns are one of many types of data visualizations used to organize and present data in a way the audience can understand and take action on. To ensure visualizations have real business value, it’s important to know which types of visualizations are best suited for a given data set.
