Type: Stacked Bar Chart
Chart type overview.
The Stacked Bar chart layout allows you to perform a part-to-whole comparisons over time or across categories. The setup is similar to that of the Bar Chart with the only difference that you can display subcategories within a single bar (stacked) instead of showing a distinct bar for each. Let’s see how this works on a specific exmaple.
We’re going to use the same data we used in Chart Block Overview, where we had income/expense data for different months of the year and used the chart to display the sum of all the values for each month.
We also have a Sub-type field with a more detailed breakdown of each income or expense. So, in our Stacked chart that calculates the sum of values (the Value field) for each month, we are going to apply the Segment by toggle and segment the data by the Sub-type field. As a result, we’ll display all the Sub-type values stacked on top of one another for each month. The following gif illustrates that.
