A normalized column chart shows the contribution of each measure or category to the total amount. Unlike a stacked column chart, the proportion of segment ratios and not the total column length is important for this type of chart. Segments are highlighted in different colors and located one above the other. The height of a segment indicates its ratio to the total amount represented as 100%. For example, the percentage of sales for different product categories.
This type of chart is used to see the contribution of each measure to the total value by period or category. For example, to view the percentage of different expenses in the total budget amount.
If the values of the categories contain a large amount of text, try to reduce it. Then the signatures on the diagram will look more accurate. You can use string functions in the calculated fields or conditional operators CASE.
Don't display more than 3-5 segments on the chart.
Place segments so that the largest or most important categories are located closer to the chart base. This makes it easier to compare the values.
You can split a chart by dimension into a number of small charts that are convenient to compare to one another. To do this, drag a dimension from the dataset to the Split section.
To display the absolute values of variables, use a column chart.
