2.1.1.2.2 - Minitab Express: Pie Charts

MinitabExpress  – Pie Chart (Raw Data)

This example will use data collected from a sample of students enrolled in online sections of STAT 200 during the Summer 2020 semester. These data can be downloaded as a Minitab Express Project or as a CSV file:

To create a pie chart of the primary campus variable in Minitab Express:

  1. Open the data file in Minitab Express
  2. On a PC or Mac: Select Graphs > Pie Chart
  3. Select Counts of Unique Values
  4. Double click the variable Primary Campus in the box on the left to insert it into the Categorical variable box on the right
  5. Click OK

Summarized Data Section

In the example above, raw data were used. In other words, the data file contained one row for each case. It is also possible to use Minitab Express to construct a pie chart with summarized data, for example, if you have your counts in a frequency table. If this is the case, in step 3, select Summarized Data and enter the column with the names of the categories in the Category names box and the column with the frequency counts in the Summary values box.
