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) (data has gaps between them).


Example 1

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

This bar graph has no cross over of sports so in the above bar chart they each have their own category and each bar is separate. The height of the bars 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.
