2D Pie Chart - Values

The sequence of values from the selected variable will be represented by consecutive slices of the pie (this term was first used by Haskell, 1922); the size of each slice will be proportional to the respective value. The values should be greater than 0 (0's and negative values cannot be represented as slices of the pie). This simple type of pie chart (sometimes called data pie chart) interprets data in the most straightforward manner: one case = one slice. The default pie slice patterns and colors used in this graph 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 wish to change and select Pattern from the shortcut menu. These property dialogs can also be accessed by selecting General on the Graph Options dialog. To change a pattern, click on the marker, line, or area pattern button to open the appropriate pattern dialog.
