A pyramid chart is represented by a triangle divided into sections. The sections are represented by dimensions. The section height represents the quantity or value (measure). The data in the pyramid chart type, when combined, equals 100%. Pyramids do not use any axes.
When to use
Use a pyramid chart to compare categories that are parts of a whole. The categories on a chart must be mutually exclusive and not overlapping.
To build this chart, define the data fields as follows:
- Dimension – One dimension
- Measure – One measure
- Tooltip – (Optional) One or more measures
- Trellis – (Optional) One dimension
The following chart shows how each department contributes to the whole 100% of gross sales.
