Bar chart

Updated: 10/02/2017 by Computer Hope

Alternatively called a bar graph, a bar chart is a graphic representation of data. Bar charts show horizontal or vertical bars going across the chart horizontally, with the values displayed on the bottom of the chart. Below is a sample picture of a bar chart of unique views Computer Hope received between the years of 2005 and 2013. In this chart all important parts that make up the chart are also labeled.
