I have created a lien chart and area chart in tableau. But when creating area chart i found that the Y axis is having a value greater than what i found in the line chart.
scenario: I am calculating total unemployment grouping on gender and age
In articles it is mentioned that due to stacking in area chart you will have a higher value for the graph corresponding to Y axis. What is stacking means? Please explain
When i am using line chart Y axis for males has a different value and when i am using area chart it has a different value.
Thanks and Regards
An area chart is a line chart where the area between the line and the axis are shaded with a color. These charts are typically used to represent accumulated totals over time and are the conventional way to display stacked lines.
