In this video, we’ll plot American generations in a chart with floating bars.
On this worksheet we have a list of six generations. Each generation has a start year and end year, which represent birth years.
How can we plot these generations in an easy to ready bar chart?
This seems like a simple problem, but a solution takes a little creative thinking.
To help illustrate the challenge, I’ll plot this data in the most obvious way.
I want a horizontal bar chart, so I’ll use the icon next to recommended charts.
