No pie charts

“Never use a pie chart.” – said one of my favorite senior consultants with a lot of passion. “For every case where you might want to use a pie chart, there is a better chart out there.”

With more data present than ever before, understanding how to visualize data is a useful skill. To that end, I thought I’d share a “chart suggestions thought starter” infographic. Most of it is common sense.

But, as you and I have likely experienced and been guilty of ourselves, common sense is not common practice.
