# Excel 100% Stacked Line Charts

## 100% Stacked Line

100% Stacked Line charts show the proportion of contribution to trends in the data.

This is done by scaling the lines so that the total is 100%.

100% Stacked Line charts are used with data which can be placed in an order, from low to high.

The charts are used when you have more than one data column which all add up to the total trend.

Note: Data which can be placed in an order, from low to high, like numbers and letter grades from A to F are called ordinal data. You can read more about ordinal data at Statistics - Measurement Levels.
