Radar charts

Use radar charts to visualize and compare three or more quantitative variables. Available in Excel with the XLSTAT software.


Radar charts (or radar plots) are useful for visualizing and comparing three or more quantitative variables. For example, we can use a radar chart to compare students' grades in each course to the class average.

How to create a radar chart in XLSTAT?

XLSTAT enables you to create and customize radar plots thanks to several options:

Variables or Images: XLSTAT allows you to select variable names in two forms: as text or as images. You simply have to copy and paste images to the Excel cells in the column containing the labels.

Chart type: XLSTAT allows you to customize your radar chart:

  • Classic: Enable this option to display a classic radar chart.
