2D Bar Chart Cumulative

From Grapheme wiki


A Cumulative Bar Chart is a 2D Bar Chart showing different values for the same data categories aligned together. The overall height of the column shows the total sum of values of the category the column belongs to. The different colors of the column show instead the relative contribution to the sum of every value. The categories are nominal or ordinal such as months of the year, age group, shoe sizes, and animals.


As typical example, consider films released each year for different genres. In this case, we can define each year as a discrete category and each genre will be a different series. Considering a specific year, we can see from different colors of the column the different number of films for each genre and from the total height of the column the total number of films released that year.
