PercentileBarChart[{list1, list2, ...}]
generates a stacked bar chart of the data in the lists. The data for each group of bars is scaled so that the sum of the absolute values in a group of bars is 1.
  • PercentileBarChart has the same options as Graphics with the following additions:
BarStyleAutomaticstyle for the bars
BarSpacingAutomaticratio of bar width to space bars in a group
BarGroupSpacingAutomaticspacing between groups of bars
BarLabelsAutomaticlabels at tick marks for each bar (or group)
BarValuesFalsewhether to show the length of each bar
BarEdgesTruewhether edges are drawn around each bar
BarEdgeStyleOpacity[0.5]style for the bar edges
BarOrientationVerticaldetermines horizontal or vertical orientation
  • Each listi is a list of numbers or numeric values. For example: {1, 7, -4, 2, 3}.
  • The listi need not have the same length.
  • The heights of all the groups of bars in an PercentileBarChart are the same.
