Bar graph

A pictorial representation of data shown using parallel bars of varying heights. The bars do not touch as the data is about categories.

A bar chart is a graph with columns of varying height showing different amounts

Bar charts display data but there are gaps between bars (just like in a jail) (there are gaps between the data).


Example 1

Here is an example of a bar chart showing how many people play a certain sport

This bar graph has no crossover of sports so in the above bar chart they each have their own category and each bar is separate. The height of a bar shows the number of people who play that sport.


Example 2

Another example of bar chart showing how many use certain technologies

There is clear separation between the bars on the bar graph above.
