This week our team enjoyed a lively Slack debate about using pie charts vs bar charts for visualizing spending breakdowns.
Pie charts are generally more popular than bar charts. They’re visually interesting and convey wholeness. “Everyone loves a pie chart” is something we’ve said many times here at Tiller.
But many people prefer a bar chart, because they can track a larger number of categories effectively, show trends over time, and convey absolute and relative value.
In the end, the debate comes down to personal preference. Which do you prefer to view your spending data?
Take a quick poll here in the Tiller Community. We’ll share the results next week in the format of the winning chart.
(This whole debate makes me want to visit the Pie Bar in Seattle.)
