A pie chart (or pie graph) is a specialized circular chart with different sectors, used in statistics, illustrating numerical proportion. A wedge of the circle represents each category's contribution, such that the graph resembles a pie that has been cut into different sized slices. Every 1% contribution that a category contributes to the total corresponds to a slice with an angle of 360 degrees. It is helpful to color or shade the different slices so that they grade from dark to light tones as you move from the first to the last slice. Pie charts are very widely used in the business world and the mass media. One thing you should pay attention to is that pie charts are good for displaying data for around 6 categories or fewer. When there are more categories it is difficult for the eye to distinguish between the relative sizes of the different sectors and so the chart becomes difficult to interpret.
