What Is Bar Chart

A bar chart or bar graph is a chart with bars whose lengths are proportional to quantities. Bar charts can greatly benefit data annalists for its visualization nature. For those time-crunched viewers, bar charts help them "get the picture" at one glance quickly.

How to Use Bar Chart to Analyze Data

Bar charts provide a visual presentation of categorical data and are also very useful for recording discrete data.

They can also be used for more complex comparisons of numbers with grouped bar charts and stacked bar charts. In a grouped bar chart, for each categorical group there are two or more bars. These bars are color-coded to represent a particular grouping.

You can simply compare different objects in terms of quantity, or you can also analyze their proportional relationship by showing their percentage to the whole.
