A 2D bar chart is used to represent quantitative information. The chart consists of horizontally aligned rectangular bars of equal width with lengths proportional to the values they represent. This helps in the instant comparison of data. One axis of the chart plots categories and the other axis represents the value scale.
Typical applications: This chart is used for comparing data such as the GDP growth of various countries, performance of athletes in a sport, and so on.
Remember: Bar charts are an ideal fit when it comes to plotting charts with long data labels, more than seven categories, and negative data values.
