# Pie Charts: Carry out Data Analysis Efficiently and Effectively

### Introduction to Pie Chart

A pie chart (or a circle chart) is a circular statistical graphic looking like a pie, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion. It is very useful for comparing different parts of the whole or highlighting a certain part. It helps viewers get the point at one glance clearly.

Pie charts can be used to analyze statistics for classroom teaching, business reports or presenting research results in academic essays and so on. It can serve as a capable tool to help people discover the most useful information from what otherwise may be dry or meaningless figures.

### How to Use Pie Chart to Analyze Data

It is best to use pie charts when you want to show differences within groups based on one variable. For example, in order to show the significance of age on sales, you can break down the sample group into different age groups. It is important to remember that pie charts should only be used with several parts that combine to make up a whole. According to your need, you can choose different kinds of pie charts to analyze data as shown by the following table.
