Creating a pie chart

A pie chart is a circle—or pie—that is sliced. Each slice is identified using a different color and/or label. The size or angle of the slice represents that item or category's proportion to the whole. Pie charts are best at showing part-to-whole relationships when there aren't too many slices. Bar charts are great and popular alternatives to pie charts.
