100% Stacked Bar Chart (Chart Controls)

This chart type displays multiple data series as stacked bars, and the cumulative proportion of each stacked element always totals 100%.

The 100% stacked bar chart is useful for measuring multiple series as a proportion vs. time. For example, use this chart type for displaying the proportion of a monthly mortgage payment that is applied to interest and principal over time. In this example, the mortgage payment amount represents 100%, while the interest and the principal values are the two stacked elements that make up one bar.
