Pie chart

The pie chart uses two data dimensions, or variables, to show categories as a proportion or a percentage of the whole. Categories are non-quantitative data elements such as customers, vendors, departments, branches, merchant category codes, transaction types, statuses, and so on.

The pie chart in Figure 1 uses two data dimensions to show customer transaction amounts as a percentage of the total transaction amount.

Table 1 provides additional details about pie chart configuration settings.
