2D Bar Chart Normalized

From Grapheme wiki


A Normalized Bar Chart is a 2D Bar Chart showing different values for the same data categories aligned together. In this chart each value is normalized so that the sum for each categories equals 1. The different colors of the column represents the relative contribution of each value to the overall total sum. The categories are nominal or ordinal such as months of the year, age group, shoe sizes, and animals.


As typical example, consider the population of each European country for different age groups. In this case, we can define each country as a discrete category and each age group will be a different series. Considering a specific country, we can see from different colors of the column the relative contribution of each age group to the total population of that country. Considering the whole chart, we can compare all the relative contributions of each age group to its country total population.
