# Pareto Charts Excel

How do you create a Pareto chart?

• Step 1: Total the data on effect of each contributor, and sum these to determine the grand total.
• Step 2: Re-order the contributors from the largest to the smallest.
• Step 3: Determine the cumulative-percent of total.
• Step 4: Draw and label the left vertical axis.
• What is the difference between Pareto and Histogram?

A histogram is a bar graph that uses the height of the bar to convey the frequency of an event occurring. Each bar in a histogram corresponds to the frequency of occurrence of a specific event. A Pareto chart displays bars by the height of the bars, signifying the order of impact.

How do you find the 80/20 rule?

You may think of the 80-20 rule as simple cause and effect: 80% of outcomes (outputs) come from 20% of causes (inputs). The rule is often used to point out that 80% of a company's revenue is generated by 20% of its customers.

### Is a Pareto chart numerical or categorical?

When we present such a variable in a graph, or in a table showing the frequencies of each categorical responses, there is no particular order for the categories we must retain. The categorical responses may be arranged in descending order of frequency for example. Such a graph is referred to as a Pareto chart.
