Dashboarding in Qlik Sense

Analysing the horrors of Halloween


Bar charts are a great way to display information. In this spooky dashboard, you can see a data analysis of horror movies displayed in two different Bar charts. The charts allow you to make an easy comparison between a range of scary movies.

In fact, Bar charts are fantastic at revealing data trends as they can reflect historical data too. According to Forbes, “They’re a staple in the data visualization arsenal.” So we know they help business leaders visualise and demonstrate key insights quickly. 


The Bar chart is an easy-to-understand visualisation tool and a great way to communicate data to people at all data literacy levels.


Two Bar chart types you’ve probably come across frequently are: 


  1. Horizontal: The bars are displayed horizontally and allow you to easily compare the varying bar lengths to draw business insights.
  2. Vertical: Displays bars vertically and guides your thinking to the magnitude each bar represents.
