# Basic Divided Bar Diagrams

This solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with templates, samples and a library of vector stencils for drawing Divided Bar diagrams.

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 proportions of the total amount. Divided Bars are used for visual representation of the collected information.

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

## Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application by using the Basic Divided Bar Diagrams solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE.

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

This example shows a combination of two divided bar diagrams. Looking at this diagram, you need just a few seconds to understand that the composition of estates has significantly changed. You can then pay attention to each bar to analyze and compare categories, individually.

## Example 2: Global Natural Gas Consumption

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

Using a divided bar graph to compare data, you have many tools at your disposal to focus attention on different aspects of the comparison. One such tool is the order in which you put categories. You can use geographical, alphabetical or any other aspect of your data to highlights the main ideas of the comparison.

## Example 3: Basic Divided Bar Diagram — London Election Results

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

This example demonstrates using a combination of divided bar diagrams for comparing statistics. Adding axes makes this comparison easier to read.

## Example 4: Products Yielded from One Barrel of Crude Oil

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

Using balanced color palettes makes divided bar diagrams stylish and attractive for modern presentations and infographics. We recommend keeping data as balanced as these color palates, using a limited number of categories. This allows you to keep your divided bar diagram as easy to read as it is pleasant to see.
