Stack bar chart

A stacked bar chart or  graph is a chart that uses bars to demonstrate comparisons between categories of data, but with ability to impart and compare parts of a whole. Each bar in the chart represents a whole and segments which represent different parts or categories of that whole.

Example 1: Using iris dataset

Python3

import plotly.express as px
 
df = px.data.iris()
 
fig = px.bar(df, x="sepal_width", y="sepal_length", color="species",
            hover_data=['petal_width'], barmode = 'stack')
 
fig.show()

                    

 
 

Output:


 


 

Example 2: Using tips dataset


 

Python3

import plotly.express as px
 
df = px.data.tips()
 
fig = px.bar(df, x="total_bill", y="day",
             color="sex", barmode = 'stack')
 
fig.show()

                    

 
 

Output:


 


 

Example 3: Using graph_objects class


 

Python3

import plotly.graph_objects as px
import numpy as np
 
 
# creating random data through randomint
# function of numpy.random
np.random.seed(42)
 
random_x= np.random.randint(1,101,100)
random_y= np.random.randint(1,101,100)
 
x = ['A', 'B', 'C', 'D']
 
plot = px.Figure(data=[go.Bar(
    name = 'Data 1',
    x = x,
    y = [100, 200, 500, 673]
   ),
                       go.Bar(
    name = 'Data 2',
    x = x,
    y = [56, 123, 982, 213]
   )
])
 
plot.update_layout(barmode='stack')
                  
plot.show()

                    

 
 

Output:
