A simple bar graph example

Imagine that you are analyzing which movies had the biggest attendance in one given cinema. In the x-axis of your bar graph (horizontal), you can add each movie. On the y- axis you can add the number of people who have been to the cinema (vertical axis).

After you count how many people attended each movie, you can see in your bar graph which movie was the most attended at a glance.

How do you create a bar graph?

Bar graphs consist of rectangles plotted vertically or horizontally. In the horizontal axis, add the time frame or the categories or names of the things you want to analyze, and in the vertical axis, you can add the quantities that will be measured. You can also switch the axes, so you have either a vertical or horizontal bar graph. Miro 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.
