A width graph usually takes the shape of a triangle and is divided into horizontal sections. It typically displays an interconnected progression in the data. Pyramid and funnel graphs are types of width graphs.
In this article
1. Pyramid Graph
A pyramid chart is a simple way to show ordered data or hierarchies. Like a stacked bar chart, each segment is stacked vertically. However, the height of each segment is the same, and the value of each segment, represented by its width, is usually (but not always) smaller than the segment below, which gives the pyramid shape. Pyramid charts are particularly useful when the data is ordered from largest to smallest.
In the example below, the axes are ordered in the tree from smallest to largest, and so the chart displays the progression upwards from awareness to trial and regular consumption.
- Select the axes. In this case a grid has been setup with the required axes that share the same element list.
- Click Visualize and Harmoni defaults to a bar graph.
- From the Visualize menu, select the pyramid graph icon.
- To change the sort order of the brands, Total Brand Awareness is selected and Ranked.

Conversion Rate Percentages
The conversion rate shows the proportion of respondents who move from one level of the pyramid to the next. In the example of Cool Nut, 50% of respondents move from Total Brand Awareness through to Tried in the Past 3 Months and 79% move from Tried in the Past 3 Months through to Drink Regularly. The conversion rate default direction is from bottom to top.
You can change the order of the rows by using Rank. This will also change the direction of the conversion percentages calculation.
In this example, rank changes the pyramid graph to a funnel graph.
- Rank the table
- Use the Visualize menu to select a pyramid graph
- Ranking highest to lowest changes the order and displays a funnel graph
Learn more about Rank.
Conversion Rate Direction when Ranked
- No ranking: bottom to top
- Rank high to low: top to bottom
- Rank low to high: bottom to top
Using reorder allows you to manually change and control the order of the rows. This can be necessary if you are pulling individual axes from the project tree, rather than a grid with a preset order. When you select individual axes, Harmoni defaults to ordering the axes in the same order as they appear in the project tree.
Note that you cannot use reorder if ranking has been used.
- Drag the required axes with the same elements to the analysis pane
- Use reorder to order the rows
- Click Visualize and select the pyramid graph

2. Funnel Graph
A funnel graph is the reverse of the pyramid graph. The data displays from largest at the top, to smallest at the bottom, as if moving through a funnel.
Because the flow is from top to bottom, so too is the direction of the conversion rates. Instead of controlling the conversion direction using ranking, you can have the default setting changed via personalization keys. Keys that can be applied at the user, site (all users), or company (all users) level. Contact email@example.com for more information.
If you are more likely to display data in a funnel graph, contact Support@infotools.com to make this change. Please note that the change is made at the site level and will affect all other Harmoni users on the site, so you may need to discuss this with your site administrator.
