KPI indicator with status, deviation and history

This visualization is all about visualizing Key Performance Indicators. The status is presented as a color indication, comparing the actual and target values. Deviation is presented as distance in percent of actual from target. The history (trend) is presented as a line or a bar chart. It is up to the user to decide which granularity of history that should be displayed. Any dimension attributes can be used, but it’s recommended to stick to the ones in your date dimension.

Stack Chart

The stack chart is essentially an area chart where instead of the sections overlaying each other, they are stacked on top of one another. This chart is particularly useful when analyzing the sum of values for categories with individual contributors. The visual has complete integration with PowerBI.

Labeled Histogram

Labeled Histogram is a histogram with a twist. As a traditional histogram it shows the distribution of a single variable in form of the column chart. In addition to that Labeled Histogram shows the label of each data point displayed in the column itself so you can see to which histogram bin each data point belongs. As an example a distribution of the employment to population ratio across different countries is plotted.
