A Pareto chart combines a column chart and a line graph. The Pareto principle states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. In this example, we will see that 80% of the complaints come from 2 out of 10 (20%) complaint types.
You will learn how to create a Pareto Chart in Excel. Pareto diagram is an advanced type of chart in Excel. Consists of both a column chart and line chart. It presents a graphical incidence of certain factors (eg, causes complaints or defects). It is used mainly for quality control, to show what the focus mainly to get the best results (eg, elimination of one defect may reduce the number of complaints by half.)..
Pareto Charts are one of the many new Charts available only in Excel 2016. They are very visual as it can easily show you the biggest factors in the data set, like seeing which issues are the most common. A Pareto chart, also called a sorted histogram, is a column chart which sorts the data in descending order. The largest items are listed first for emphasis.
So far, we introduced you to our new chart types across Office 2016 and then dove deeper into a few of them. We showed the effectiveness of the Waterfall chart in visualizing financial statements and how hierarchical chart types, like Treemap and Sunburst, can help you explore complex data with multiple levels and categories. Now, we will take a closer look at the last group of new chart types—statistical charts. Statistical charts, which include Histogram, Pareto and Box and Whisker, help summarize and add visual meaning to key characteristics of data...
Excel 2016’s many new features include six new chart types. We’ll go over Histogram, Pareto, and Waterfall and talk about how they could be used with your data. The Histogram chart in Excel 2016 looks like a regular column chart, but each column represents a ‘range’ of values (called a bin) instead of a single value. Histogram charts are for exploring and analyzing the frequencies within a distribution, statistics, density estimation, etc.
Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule) is a well-known concept in project management. According to it, ~80% of the problems can be attributed to about ~20% of the issues (or ~80% of your results could be a direct outcome of ~20% of your efforts, and so on..). The 80/20 percentage value may vary, but the idea is that of all the issues/efforts, there a few that result in maximum impact.

Creating In-Cell Charts with REPT Function is a smart move. You can use these charts in your dashboards to give a quick view to your user. I have used this text repeating formula to create an In-Cell Column Chart & a Star Rating Template. But, here I have created an In-Cell Gantt Chart for the sake of my laziness. Let me show you this lite weight In Cell Gantt Chart.
In this lesson you can learn how to insert Waterfall Chart. Waterfall chart is interesting example of a chart in Excel. This is a very effective and quite simple to do in Excel chart type. Waterfall chart can be used for example to show the revenue and expenditure of personal or business.
Creating an In Cell Column Chart by using the REPT Function is the second part of our In Cell Charting Series. Yesterday, I had used this Text Repetition Formula to create a Star Rating Template In Excel. Basic Idea of creating a column chart with REPT Function is as simple as we create a normal column chart in excel.
