    Tableau area chart

    rajendra kalepu

      Hi All,


      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
