Lollipop Charts

Lollipop charts are very similar to bar charts and can be used to show how data behaves over time or to compare data sets. The design is rather self-explanatory where the chart has lines with circles at the end to represent data points which resemble lollipops.

An example of a lollipop chart is one I created after researching data on what the most popular car colors are in the United States.

Data Source: Most Popular Car Colors | Study by iSeeCars | Germain Auto Group (germaincars.com)

Using this chart creates a minimalistic and readable display of the data that clearly shows that white, black, and gray are the top three colors. Lollipop charts are very versatile and can be a very effective way of visualizing data.
