How to Create a Doughnut Chart
Doughnut charts are pie charts with an area of space in the middle. It shows the proportions of each category based on the size of each slice. The entire circle represents 100 percent, and each slice represents a portion of a whole.
Doughnut charts benefit from having a blank space in the middle in which extra information about the chart or data values can be included. In fact, the blank space can be used to display an extra set of data altogether so that comparisons between two sets of data can be made directly on the same chart.
Doughnut charts are excellent for displaying data points as a percentage of the whole.
