The stacked bar chart below shows a forecast of the number of worldwide emails sent on a daily basis from 2014 and 2018. The segments in the stack show the break down of business versus consumer emails.
The data column to the right of the chart helps the reader understand that business emails, growing at 6% CAGR, is the primary driver of total email growth. This is likely due to consumer preference toward other forms of communication including social media and instant messaging. A data row below the chart is used to show the number of worldwide email users. The breakdown of business and consumer email users was not available.
The data row allows to show data that is related to the main data plotted in the chart area without the complexity of additional visuals and axis scales. With Aploris the numbers are part of the chart data and may be part of calculations. The values are automatically updated and aligned with the categories displayed in the chart.
