About the Bar Graph Template

A bar graph (also called a bar chart or bar diagram) is a visual representation of data using bars of different lengths. Bar graphs are good for comparing amounts.

There are two types of bar graphs:

  1. Vertical bar graph
  2. Horizontal bar graph

To create a bar graph, you need a data set containing categorical (x-axis) and quantitative (y-axis) variables. FigJam is the perfect bar graph maker, with extensive diagramming capabilities that are easy to use and share with your team. Try it out and see if that works for you.

How do you create a bar graph?

Bar graphs are created by plotting rectangles either vertically or horizontally. The horizontal axis is used to add the time frame or the categories or names of the things you want to analyze, and the vertical axis is used to add the quantities that will be measured.
