2D Pie Chart - Counts

Unlike the values pie chart, the count pie (the term was first used by Haskell, 1922) chart (sometimes called frequency pie chart) interprets data like a histogram. It categorizes all values of the selected variable following the selected categorization technique (see Graphs - Pie Charts) and then displays the relative frequencies as pie slices of proportional sizes. The default pie slice patterns and colors used in this pie chart can be adjusted in the appropriate pattern's properties dialog (e.g., Line Properties, Area Properties, Marker Properties). To quickly select a property dialog, right click on the pattern you want to change and select Pattern from the shortcut menu. These property dialogs can also be accessed by selecting General in the Graph Options dialog. To change a pattern, click on the marker, line, or area pattern button to display the appropriate pattern dialog.
