Visualize categories as parts of the whole with Pie and Donut Charts

A pie chart is a circular graph that shows individual categories as slices – or percentages – of the whole. The donut chart is a variant of the pie chart, with a hole in its center, and it displays categories as arcs rather than slices. Both make part-to-whole relationships easy to grasp at a glance.

They differ from line charts, area charts, column charts, and bar graphs in that they can’t show changes over time.

The pie graph gives a strong and immediate sense of overall proportions, whereas the donut graph leads the reader’s eye around the arcs of the circle – and tend to creates more of a narrative. One advantage of the donut graph is that additional information can be displayed at the graph’s center.

Pie charts and donut charts are commonly used to visualize election and census results, revenue by product or division, recycling data, survey responses, budget breakdowns, educational statistics, spending plans, or population segmentation.
