What Is a Percentage Component Bar Chart?

A percentage component bar chart shows what the percentage that multiple components reached to make 100 percent of a given value. The bars can be stacked horizontally or vertically depending on the type of look someone wants to give their graph.

The percentage component bar chart can be made up of any number of items, from as few as two to as many as are needed to convey the needed information. The amounts represented on these kinds of graphs are portions and not absolute values so they may lay out or appear different from other graphs with the same content and information put into them.
