Frequently asked questions.

What should I use a bar chart for?

Bar charts present categorical data compared among different groups, or tracked over time or another value. You can use bar charts to present earnings, trends, cost fluctuations over times, or distributions, to name a few examples.
What are the best practices for making a bar graph?
Keep your graph simple so your data is easy to read. Use color to your advantage by using contrasting colors and a cohesive color palette. Make sure your bars have a square, flat top so that way it’s easy to measure the data. If one axis is numerical or has a set order, it’s generally best to start at 0 (or the beginning). Otherwise, organize your bars by height so it indicates hierarchy.
What are some different types of bar charts?
Horizontal, vertical, stacked, comparison, lollipop, or diverging stacked are a few examples of bar chart formats. Make any style quickly and easily with Adobe Express.
