Pie Charts

The Pie Chart is one of the most popular statistical charts, widely used to visualize all kinds of data, in cases when you need to show the ratio of the part and whole, to represent the proportion of each value relative to the total volume, to display the percentage ratio of several parts. The Pie Graph is named so for its resemblance to a sliced pie, which effectively displays proportions. It visualizes the entire data set as a disk, which is then divided into the sectors to display a numerical proportion and allows one to emphasize the value of each part of the total amount. The sector angle is proportional to the represented quantity, the sector's area corresponds to the contribution to the total volume.

There are several types of Pie Chart design — the sectors can be located at a short distance one from another or be joined into one whole, or even have a hole inside as a Donut Chart. You can also meet a variant, when some sector or group of sectors are slightly displaced from the common disk for additional emphasis on their importance. Pay special attention to the effective use of a bright color palette in your Pie Charts, which provides a visual division of information that facilitates greatly the interpretation and perception of information, and increases its understanding. Don't forget to add a legend or a table of values and correspondence of colors used on the chart. It is also recommended to control the number of sectors, because this type of chart the best suits and is the most informative for not very large number of them, else when the segments are thin and there are a lot of them, it is difficult to identify visually on how much one sector is larger than another.

The Pie Charts are extensively used in statistics and business for explaining data and work results, in mass media for comparison information, in geo analytics, for example to depict the distribution of population between the states, to present the groups of people by race or by native language within a single country, in chemistry for depiction the components of the mixtures, and also in many other fields.
