Whatever needs to be compared, it can be done with help of charts, such as a pie chart. Pie chart is a very widely used type of chart which illustrates its sectors in the different proportions with different angles. This type of chart is very useful for illustrating some kind of data, divided by the groups. The way this data is represented is very convenient as it is obvious to tell if one sector is bigger than another by only looking at the pie chart and its sectors. Shortly, pie chart looks like a disk, which is divided by different sectors. Each sector displays its own numerical proportion. Each sector is situated by an angle, which is proportional to the total quantity, which always equals 100%. The pie chart was named this way because of its resemblance to a sliced pie which effectively displays the proportions of its constituents. The pie chart allows everyone to emphasize the value of each part of the total amount illustrated on this chart.

There are different types of pie chart you can make if you need to. There are pie charts with its sectors located at a short distance one from another or joined. Sometimes some pie chart has a hole in the very centre of it, then it’s called a donut chart. If you use a bright colour palette for creating your pie chart, then there are more chances for those who this chart is being made to see and to recognize which of the sectors is what and if one bigger than another. If you add a legend to your chart, it will increase your chances for having the final result effective, so it will lead to what it was planned to lead to, as both having it coloured with a legend increases the understanding of the data which is being illustrated.

Pie charts are very widely used in business and statistics. They are meant to be explaining some particular data and, sometimes, the work results. They are also often used in mass media to compare the existing facts and other information which is described in the main articles on the news sites, etc. This kind of charts is simply for visualizing the percentage of the parts of one total unit and it is very widely used in very many fields of activity.
