## Question about the Ribbon Chart

Hello Community  -  Does anyone know what the 89.58% number represents?   I see that it appears to be adding the two percentages together, but what is it actually a measure of?

You are hovering between June and July, so it shows the % change between the months.
-56.25 minus 33.33 = -89.58 This is the negative growth %

As you haven't provided complete information around what metrics you have moved to this chart, I tried the ribbon chart at my end with a simple metric overtime:

In the above chart I have shown Sales overtime split by different clothing categories.

When I hover over the ribbon portion of August 2014, I see a tooltip which ives me following information:

1. Sales for Shirts for July 2014
2. Sales for Shirts August 2014
3. Difference in sales for above 2 months (negative as it is gone down in August as compared to July)
4. In the month of July, a ranking is created for sales against all the different clothing categories; out of which Shirts generated the most sales and is ranked 1 as compared to other categories on the chart.
5. Similarly a ranking for the Shirts category for the month of August.
6. Last but not tht least, a chnage in the ranks for the Shirts category on sales.

I suspect in your case you are moving a proportion metric or a distinct count metric as a percentage. (not clear to me with your screenshot).

You can relate the description from my chart to your's and hopefully the tooltip information is clear to you.

Thanks,
