Pie charts: comparing data visually

My last blog post, nicely ties in with this topic, just to reiterate the Internet is a crucial way for Startups to develop. So therefore this can have an actual impact on how successful a Startup can be.

A pie chart is good way to compare data in a way that is visually appealing and extremely easy to interpret. This is one of the most commonly used charts for these reasons. With the desire to be your own boss becoming more of popular concept, I thought it would be interesting to compare how popular startups globally are for this year so far.

It is clear to see that America with 6,302 startups so far this year are in the lead, with Europe not too far behind at 4,485. It is actually surprising how close Asia and the Middle East & Africa are to each other. 

Top tip: On a pie chart what is not apparent is the axis, although it does have one. It is infact the perimeter of the circle that serves as the axis.
