A lot of time in your day to day work the requirement to create 100 % stacked column chart came. In this post we will see how we can create or plot 100 % stacked column chart in Tableau.
Data set –
First of all lets see the data that we are going to use for this simple example.
The above data contains marks of the students. The data set contains four columns namely ID, Name, Subjects, Marks and the percentage. Out of these the first four are easily understandable, the fifth is what we have calculated. As we have to create 100 percent stacked bar graph, we have to sum up the marks such that they can sum to 100 percent. Say for example, for John to calculate percentage, we divide each subject marks with the total he got for all subjects. i.e
Marks in English/ (marks in all subjects scored by John)
Now comes the chart preparation in Tableau. Once the data is ready, its easy to create chart. Drag and drop the Name into Columns and Percent in Rows. Also add the Subject column in Colors Marks, as shown below in the screenshot.
That’s it. The chart is ready.
