How to Draw a Divided Bar Chart in ConceptDraw PRO

A divided bar graph is a rectangle divided into smaller rectangles along its length in proportion to the data. Segments in a divided bar represent a set of quantities according to the different proportion of the total amount. A divided bar diagram is created using rectangular bars to depict proportionally the size of each category. The bars in a divided bar graph can be vertical or horizontal. The size of the each rectangle displays the part that each category represents. The value of the exact size of the whole must be known, because the each section of the bar displays a piece of that value. A divided bar diagram is rather similar to a sector diagram in that the bar shows the entire data amount and the bar is divided into several parts to represent the proportional size of each category. ConceptDraw PRO in conjunction with Divided Bar Diagrams solution provides tools to create stylish divided bar charts for your presentations. Read more

A divided bar chart is a rectangle divided into segments, illustrating numerical proportion. In a divided bar chart, the length of each segment (and consequently its area), is proportional to the quantity it represents.

"A pie chart (or a circle graph) is a circular chart divided into sectors, illustrating numerical proportion. In a pie chart, the arc length of each sector (and consequently its central angle and area), is proportional to the quantity it represents. While it is named for its resemblance to a pie which has been sliced, there are variations on the way it can be presented. ...
An obvious flaw exhibited by pie charts is that they cannot show more than a few values without separating the visual encoding (the “slices”) from the data they represent (typically percentages). When slices become too small, pie charts have to rely on colors, textures or arrows so the reader can understand them. This makes them unsuitable for use with larger amounts of data. Pie charts also take up a larger amount of space on the page compared to the more flexible alternative of bar charts, which do not need to have separate legends, and can also display other values such as averages or targets at the same time. ...
Most subjects have difficulty ordering the slices in the pie chart by size; when the bar chart is used the comparison is much easier. Similarly, comparisons between data sets are easier using the bar chart. However, if the goal is to compare a given category (a slice of the pie) with the total (the whole pie) in a single chart and the multiple is close to 25 or 50 percent, then a pie chart can often be more effective than a bar graph."

This divided bar chart sample shows the petroleum products yielded from 1 barrel of crude oil in California in 2004. It was drawn using data from the chart on the California Energy Almanac website. [energyalmanac.ca.gov/gasoline/whats_in_barrel_oil.html]
"Petroleum products are useful materials derived from crude oil (petroleum) as it is processed in oil refineries. Unlike petrochemicals, which are a collection of well-defined usually pure chemical compounds, petroleum products are complex mixtures. The majority of petroleum is converted to petroleum products, which includes several classes of fuels.
According to the composition of the crude oil and depending on the demands of the market, refineries can produce different shares of petroleum products. The largest share of oil products is used as "energy carriers", i.e. various grades of fuel oil and gasoline. These fuels include or can be blended to give gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, heating oil, and heavier fuel oils. Heavier (less volatile) fractions can also be used to produce asphalt, tar, paraffin wax, lubricating and other heavy oils. Refineries also produce other chemicals, some of which are used in chemical processes to produce plastics and other useful materials. Since petroleum often contains a few percent sulfur-containing molecules, elemental sulfur is also often produced as a petroleum product. Carbon, in the form of petroleum coke, and hydrogen may also be produced as petroleum products. The hydrogen produced is often used as an intermediate product for other oil refinery processes such as hydrocracking and hydrodesulfurization." [Petroleum product. Wikipedia]
The chart example "Petroleum products yielded from one barrel of crude oil" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Divided Bar Diagrams solution from the Graphs and Charts area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
