Create a Matrix Chart in Engage

What is a Matrix Chart?

A matrix chart has two axes to show numerical data along a horizontal axis and vertical axis. Dots are plotted at the intersection of the X and Y values and can vary in size and in color to represent two additional dimensions of data. Based on where the dots are plotted, categories than be labeled for values that fall within the same matrix quadrant.

Example

Imagine that you're trying to visualize the top 8 companies in a given industry (i.e. shoes) by average unit price and the number of units sold. In addition you want to show what the total annual revenue was for each company and how much each company spent on advertising.

Show Brands X Value (Average Unit Price) Y Value (Units Sold) Size (Annual Revenue) Fill (Ad Spend)
Show Co. 1 \$146 550,000 \$80,300,000 \$11,030,000
Show Co. 2 \$172 725,000 \$124,700,000 \$12,000,000
Show Co. 3 \$112 640,000 \$71,6800,000 \$9,168,000
Show Co. 4 \$60 1,130,000 \$67,913,000 \$6,791,300
Show Co. 5 \$39 1,650,000 63,525,000 6,352,500
Show Co. 6 \$82 940,000 77,080,000 7,708,000
Show Co. 7 \$134 1,280,000 171,520,000 12,152,000
Show Co. 8 \$33 900,000 29,250,000 3,925,000
