The benchmarking chart series has been updated and expanded, totaling over 70 new standalone content items. Each content item can be further customized by adding or removing the different appearance options.
The benchmarking chart series consists of five different visual archetypes:
Best for: Comparing peers for a specific metric
A classic data visualization, the benchmarking bar chart effectively compares a subject company and its comps with the option to organize the comps into groups.
Benchmarking Compound bars
Best for: Showing rank across multiple metrics
An evolution of the horizontal benchmarking chart, the compound bar charts show how different entities rank for different metrics for easy comparison in a single exhibit.
Benchmarking linked compound bars
Best for: Displaying change in rank across multiple metrics
Similar to the benchmarking compound bar charts, each chart in the compound bar chart series contains a group of individually-sorted benchmarking bar charts, linked together by colored lines. These lines display the change in rank for each entity across each metric. The compound benchmarking bars can give insights into how the subject company is positioned to its comps across multiple dimensions.
Benchmarking mirror chart
Best for: Comparing past and anticipated future results for a single metric
The two "mirror-image" benchmarking bar charts are linked by a shared categorical axis listing the entities. For each entity, the historical and future data points are connected by a colored arrow line. This arrow line shows the flow of time and the change of direction (indicated by color).
Benchmarking arrow change
Best for: Showing change over a defined period of time for a company and its comps.
Entities (including summary stats) are on the y-axis with the x-axis showing the selected metric. Each entity is represented by a horizontal arrow and shows the change in the metric over the selected period.
