What is a Bar Graph?
A bar graph or bar chart is a type of data visualization that showcases the amount of different variables in a data set by letting us visualize the height or length of each bar. The more a variable has, the higher or longer its bar.
Bar charts are one of the most versatile types of data visualizations, and can work for a number of different types of data. Showcase percentages, large numbers, small numbers and more.Create Your Bar Graph

Pick one of the horizontal or vertical bar graphs, either flat or 3D. Enter your x-axis and y-axis data manually or import into the bar chart maker via an Excel sheet or Google spreadsheet.
