1. What is a Stacked Column Chart?
A Stacked Column Chart is used to break down and compare each part of an entire group.
Each column in the chart represents an entire group, and segments in the bar display different parts or categories of that group.
In a stacked column chart, different colors are used to illustrate the different categories in the column.
2. When to use Stacked Column Chart?
A Stacked Column Chart is ideal for:
Data that is segmented and added to a whole
Comparision across the different columns
Compare the individual category of one category across the different columns, specifically whichever category is sitting on the axis, or any category where the bottom of its section of the column is in a consistent place across the columns
Compare the size of different categories if they're very different
