Divided Bar Diagrams

A Divided Bar Graph is a chart used to show the data, in which the total volume is divided into the categories or components. This chart is represented as a rectangle divided into smaller rectangles along its length in proportion to data which it represents. So, the segments in a Divided Bar represent a set of quantities according to the different proportions of the total amount. The Divided Bar Charts are used for comparative purposes in many fields, especially in statistics, marketing, business, economics, sales, etc. They are also useful when used to depict changes over time.

Thus, a Divided Bar Graph based on your data usually contains several segments that are either different in length or equal, and by looking at them, you can immediately visually trace the relationship between them and draw conclusions. Divided Bars are used for visual presentation and analysis of the collected information allowing you to observe proportional relationships between data. Thus, it is effective to apply different colors and color intensities when designing your Divided Bar Graphs, to visually emphasize important points and aspects of comparisons, and to focus audience's attention when they are used in presentations, meetings, and discussions.

Divided Bar Diagrams Solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with templates, samples, and a library of vector stencils for drawing high impact and professional Divided Bar Diagrams and Graphs, Bar Diagram Math, and Stacked Graph. Divided Bar Diagram library objects include a legend that describes categories and can be shown or hidden, moved into a diagram; some objects also include a table of input values for categories. Enter your data in the table, and the segments will be displayed on the chart in accordance with the table data; when you make changes, the chart changes automatically.

In addition, you have complete freedom of action — by entering absolute values in the table, if necessary, you can display percentage values in chart segments using the action menu. The objects and the Divided Bar Diagram template are fully customizable. Select an object to your liking, and then add or delete segments, set your own number of segments, display data in a chart as a percentage or absolute values, show or hide the value display, data table, legend, and also make one more necessary change, such as color gamut, color intensity, etc. As a rule, each segment has its own color, and the correspondence of categories and colors is described in the legend.


There is 1 library containing 10 vector objects in the Divided Bar Diagrams solution.

Example 1: U.S. Primary Energy Consumption by Source and Sector

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Divided Bar Diagrams Library from the Divided Bar Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating this sample.

This Divided Bar Diagram sample represents in expanded form the consumption of primary energy by sources and main consumer sectors in the U.S. in 2015. The chart is based on data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the article "U.S. Energy Facts Explained, Consumption & Production". The total consumption amounted to 97.7 quadrillion Btu (British thermal units) in 2015. There are used many sources of primary energy in the U.S., among them petroleum, natural gas, coal, renewable energy, and nuclear electric power. The percent values of consumption all them in 2015 are depicted in the first Bar Diagram. The second one represents the percent proportions of the main consumer sectors, such as transportation, industrial, residential and commercial, electric power; the last one is the biggest. The use of each source greatly varies by sectors. Thus, natural gas provides 3% of the energy used for transportation, 35% to generate electricity, 33% of the energy for industrial, and 28% for the residential and commercial sector; the nuclear electric power is used only for electricity, etc.

Example 3: Shares of Aggregate Income

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Divided Bar Diagrams Library from the Divided Bar Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

Divided Bar Diagram is a good choice to visually represent data divided into categories for further easy comparison them. This Divided Bar Chart was constructed on the base of data from the website of the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) and illustrates the shares of aggregate incomes by the source in percent in 1962 and 2013 separately, as well as lets one easily compare their values. There are included several categories of incomes: earnings, asset income, government employee pensions, private pensions, and others. Each of these categories is colored differently from other ones and all they are represented on both bars in corresponding proportions. The correspondence of colors is represented in a legend. You can see that data for 1962 and 2013 significantly differ and especially large this difference is for the private pensions and other incomes. If in 1962, they were 3% and 15% correspondingly, in 2013 we can observe that they count 9% and 4%.

Example 6: Composition of State Government Revenue

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Divided Bar Diagrams Library from the Divided Bar Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This Divided Bar Diagram sample is based on the chart "Composition of state government revenue in 2006‑07" published on Australia's future tax system website and depicts the composition of Australian state government revenue in 2006‑2007. The use of Divided Bar Graph to compare data provides one with plenty of opportunities to use methods that allow you to focus the attention of your audience to particular aspects of the comparison. The order you put the categories is one of such methodologies. In the offered case, the order of the categories is enhanced by the intensity of color. The extrema are marked with a minimum and maximum color intensity, respectively. At this, the correspondence of colors to the categories, you can find in a legend. Among the offered categories we can observe the specific purpose payments comprised $29 billion, GTS revenue that is an Australian government tax comprised $40 billion, other own-source revenue $36 billion, and state taxes $49 billion.

Example 7: Composition of Estates

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Divided Bar Diagrams Library from the Divided Bar Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This Divided Bar Diagram sample was created on the base of the illustration "Composition of estates" from the website of the Inland Revenue Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and demonstrates the composition of estates and cases that were processed in 2010-11 and 2011-12. According to the Hong Kong law, the estate duty was charged from the part of the estate of a deceased person that was situated in Hong Kong upon to 2006 when the Revenue Ordinance and Abolition of Estate Duty entered into force. After the abolition of estate duty, the number of new cases decreased since 2010-11 to 2011-12. According to the shown Bar Diagrams, the estates are composed of the immovable properties, quoted shares, unquoted shares, bank deposits, and others in different proportions in 2010 and 2011. These bars can be easily visually compared to each other due to the close location of bars and equal coloring of the bars' parts corresponding to the same categories.

Example 9: London Elections Results

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Divided Bar Diagrams Library from the Divided Bar Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This Divided Bar Diagram sample demonstrates the London election results in 2008 and 2012. It was designed using data from the infographics "London Elections Results by Numbers" published on the london.gov.uk website that is an official website of London Assembly and Mayor of London. There are represented the election results for three main candidates: Johnson, Livingstone, Paddick, and the separate combined group representing other candidates. The results for different years are represented on the separated Bar Charts but placed one under the other that is incredibly convenient for comparing them. In addition, you can also observe the percentage scale, which allows you to additionally navigate in percentages. Color differentiation of candidates is also used. Thanks to all these advantages of ConceptDraw's Divided Bar Diagrams, it’s immediately noticeable that the first of the candidates listed got the largest number in both considered years, the second one is close to him, but still scored less, and the rest ones are behind.
