What is a Bar Graph?

A bar graph or bar chart is a type of data visualization that showcases the amount of different variables in a data set by letting us visualize the height or length of each bar. The more a variable has, the higher or longer its bar.

Bar charts are one of the most versatile types of data visualizations, and can work for a number of different types of data. Showcase percentages, large numbers, small numbers and more.

Create Your Bar Graph

Use the bar graph maker to visualize categories of data.

Pick one of the horizontal or vertical bar graphs, either flat or 3D. Enter your x-axis and y-axis data manually or import into the bar chart maker via an Excel sheet or Google spreadsheet. You can create single, double or stacked bar charts. Categorize and color code your data using up to 50 columns. Make a graph that’s easy to understand in minutes.
