1. What is a Stacked Bar Chart?
Same as a stacked column chart, a Stacked Bar Chart is used to break down and compare each part of an entire group.
Each bar represents a specific group, and segments in the bar display different parts or categories of that group.
In a Stacked Bar Chart, different colors are used to illustrate the different categories in the bar.
2. When to use a Stacked Bar Chart?
A Stacked Bar Chart is ideal for:
Data that is segmented and added to a whole
Dimension with long labels
Comparision across the different bars
Compare the individual category of one category across the different bars
Compare the size of different categories if they're very different
