Definition of Pie Chart or Pie Graph

A Pie Chart (or Pie Graph) uses sectors of a circle to represent data.

The data is broken up into categories, depending on responses to a question.

The size of each sector shows what proportion of the data is in each category.

In the example, the pie chart displays the proportions of the total number of scouts attending a district camp who come from each scout group in the district.
