To create a cross chart, click on the `Add Chart´ button and select a primary variable, in our example, `Department’. Select the variable `Gender´ as Banner variable in the drop-down menu.
When creating a cross chart the `Content´ tab will contain some special options. The `Percentage type´ option allows the user to choose how the total percentage should be spread over the chart.
Percentage type: Column
The chart to the right is based on Column percentages. Male = 100%, Female = 100%.
Percentage type: Row
In this chart, each pair of rows equal 100 percent.
Percentage type: Total
In this chart, all the columns combined equal 100 percent, so every piece of the chart is included (with a total of 100 percent).
