Pie Charts

The Pie Chart is a disk divided into sectors which display a numerical proportion. The sector angle is proportional to the represented quantity. The Pie Graph named so for its resemblance to a sliced pie, which effectively displays proportions. The Pie Chart allows one to emphasize the value of each part of the total amount.

There are several types of Pie Chart design - the sectors can be located at a short distance one from another or be joined; or even have a hole inside as a Donut Chart. Pay close attention to the effective use of a bright color palette in your Pie Chart as well as adding a legend. Color and a legend increase the understanding of information.

Pie Charts are extensively used in statistics and business for explaining data and work results, in mass media for comparison (i.e. to visualize the percentage for the parts of one total), and in many other fields.
