As opposed to time series data (data plotted along a continuous time axis – the x-axis), categorical data has no time dimension. Instead, data is aggregated into categories and optional sub-categories. The resulting chart features one continuous numerical axis and one categorical axis.
Categorical chart variants
We support one main categorical chart type, the bar chart. The categorical bar chart has a few sub-variants namely:
Vertical categorical bar chart
- Vertical categorical stacked bar chart
- Vertical categorical grouped bar chart
Horizontal categorical bar chart (top list)
- Horizontal categorical stacked bar chart
- Horizontal categorical grouped bar chart
As mentioned above, both stacking and grouping are supported in the categorical bar chart.
