Data Visualization Examples Template

Good data visualization not only helps donors and stakeholders outside your project understand your results, it helps project staff interpret and analyze data to make better project decisions. This document provides some simple examples of charts and graphs that communicate three common messages: how something changes over time, how one thing compares to another, and how a part relates to a whole. Instructions are included to help you create your own visualizations. These visualizations could be integrated into program reports or other outreach materials.

The steps in this tool describe how to create charts in MS Excel 2013; these steps may vary in other versions of Excel.
