Standard bar/column charts are ideal for showing a single measure per category so you can easily compare each of the categories with the rest. However, if you have larger number of categories (>10) in a bar/column chart it is possible the chart itself becomes “heavy” because large part of the surface of the chart will be filled with the bar color(s).

To avoid this clutter one can use the Lollipop Bar Chart as an alternative to the standard bar chart. It shows an icon (mostly a dot) per category at the corresponding measure value for each category. The icon is connected to the measure-axis origin by a subtle line. The icon combined with the line make it a Lollipop Bar Chart.

Key features of the Lollipop Bar Chart are:

  • Format the objects: Each of the data point objects (dot and line) can be formatted by selecting a color and size. Additional, the line can be switched on/off and for the dot one can switch on/off the fill color;

  • The Axis formatting options are in line with the options you know from the Power BI Clustered Bar Chart, so no need to learn a new interface;

  • Selection & Highlighting: Like in standard Power BI Charts you can make use of the Selection & Highlighting functions within the Lollipop Bar Chart;

  • Context menu: Like in standard Power BI Charts you have access to the context menu to Include/Exclude data points;

  • Full tooltip support: Besides the default Tooltip behaviour (show the value of the element you hover) you can also add additional feeds to the tooltip.

    This is an underappreciated visual, a lollipop bar chart is excellent to reduce the amount of color of bar chart and it is easier to observe small differences from bars. A must have.
