MARIMEKKO CHART

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Marimekko charts are two dimensional graphs that analyze multiple data series against two variables, the X and Y axes.  You can think of it as a variable width 100% stacked bar chart. The graphs are so named for their tapestry-like appearance.  The Marimekko graph can be used in many different industries. Its function is to display a system of interrelated values so that both groups and relative sizes of the elements can be seen at the same time. In a Marimekko chart, the width of the columns are proportional to data represented by the columns. Individual segment height is a percentage of the respective bar total value.
