Grouped bar charts are used to present data throughout the Data Navigator for Schools dashboard.

They are used to group data by different categories and allow you compare the values of each category. In the example above, the plot shows the proportion filled in each age group category.

The title and any text accompanying the grouped bar chart will describe what data item is being shown.

The x-axis indicates which category each bar grouped bar chart relates too.

The y-axis shows the magnitude of the data being represented. It may be a percentage or a count.
