When To Use a Pie Chart

Pie charts are really useful for viewing what percent each group of data contributes to a total. The slice angles represent percentages of each group.

For example, if you have an e-commerce store. A pie chart showing the number of sales from each product will show you what items bring in the most sales. This could allow you to figure out what products to focus on.

Pie charts are similar to donut charts (doughnut chart) and nightingale charts. These chart types all convey the same information about a data set but have different designs.
