Stacking Multiple Charts

If you have several bits of information to chart and are wondering how to effectively present it all together, the answer may be to separate the data into multiple charts and stack the charts. Because charts often are used to show historical information or projections over time, you can create multiple charts based on time frames, aligning the charts so each period of time appears directly above the next.

In Figure 16.32, the unit output chart has been aligned directly above the associated cost chart, and the fourth quarter has been highlighted to draw attention. You can stack two, three, or more charts in this manner to create comparisons of multiple groups of data. Why not place them on separate sheets? You can place each chart on its own sheet, but seeing how all the data correlates can provide conclusions you might not normally derive by reviewing the data separately.
