Data Interpretation is an activity in which one draws conclusion about the data available for analysis. Before attempting to explore data interpretation , let us dwell upon the following facts.


What is data ?

Data is a collection of related facts , figures , information etc. Whenever any data is given always understand the unit of data and scale factor etc. used while reporting the data.

Food – 15%

Entertainment – 10%

Saving – 25%

Mobile phone bill – 30%

total income – 100%


In a pie chart , a circle is divided into sectors, where the angle of the sector is proportional to the value of the sub component . Total expense of 100% is equal to the angel subtended by the circle that is


Sector angle for Rent =

Sector angle for Food =

Sector angel for Entertainment =

Sector angle or Saving =

Sector angle for Mobile phone bill =
