Example stacked bar chart plot

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

They are used to show the composition of a data item for your school and the benchmark. In the example above, the plot shows the composition of educational income.

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

The x-axis indicates which of the stacked bars relates to your school and the benchmark.

The y-axis shows the proportion, as a percentage of the total for a data item.
