Hello,

I have a beginner question. I'm using Graphic Builder (stack bars or areas). Suppose I have 3 columns: Year, Country and Population. What is the simplest way (without creating new columns) to show distribution of population among countries over time in percent like this:

I'm doing that kind of graphic routinely with other software.

Thanks,

Claude

Use a Mosaic plot, rather than a stacked bar, and you will get what you want.

I think I get the point. But…

Since mosaic plot computes the number of observations, I suppose I have to put the population in the frequency's square (bottom right corner)? Am I right?
