Not everyone likes pie… 🥧, 🤨

Updated: Sep 13, 2020

There are some people that do not particularly fancy sweets, like myself (I know, odd). However, I am talking about pie charts.


I feel like there are TONS of articles about pie charts, and most of them side against using them. Experts like Edward Tufte and Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic included. I have seen many reasons, some favorites; humans are bad at reading angles, they are boring, they are the Comic Sans of data visualization. 🤭


I enjoyed reading this article today on Medium: 5 Unusual Alternatives to Pie Charts.

👉🏻Article


The writer shares different ways you can turn your pie chart into something that is easier to... digest. Two of these alternatives being donut charts and waffle charts… I see a pattern here.


I am curious to know what others feel about pie charts. What is your favorite or least favorite chart type? Comment below 👇🏻


Happy Learning!!
