Bar chart at a glance


A bar chart or bar graph is a frequency diagram that displays data using bars, with the height of each bar representing the frequency of that category. Along with pictograms (pictographs) and pie charts (pie graphs), they are primarily used to display categorical data. 


When drawing bar charts, the x axis displays the data categories, and the y axis displays frequency. For a bar chart displaying categorical or non-continuous data, a gap is left between each bar. Bars are typically plotted vertically, but can appear horizontally. Double bar graphs can be used to compare two sets of related data. 


An associated important skill in data handling is reading bar charts. Students are often asked to interpret the bar charts they have drawn, or to analyse a pre-drawn bar chart – for example, finding the mode by identifying the tallest bar.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional Statistics worksheets, for example a mean, median, mode and range worksheet or frequency table worksheet.



For more teaching and learning support on Statistics our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
