Stacked chart with scattered data points



I'm looking to create an output which represents what the attached image shows (below). Is this possible to do in Power BI?


I don't have a data set yet as I'm not too sure what the optimal layout would be in order to achieve this output from a backend data perspective. 


At a high level, I essentially need to show 3 Role Levels on a chart represented by the bars & then ontop of that layer on Salary Bands where each Role Level has 3 Salary Bands (Low, Mid, High). Once this is set, I then need to add a scatter of where my employees sit regarding the Role Level they are at and how much Salary they actually get paid.

Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks. 🙂

Hi, @Mehal1996 

As mentioned by @samdthompson , no single chart can achieve that.You need to consider combining visual objects.


Please try  Python Visualizations in Power BI. (Strip Plot from the Seaborn visualization library)

After plotting  the chart ,you need to manually divide areas to get the result you want.

Hello, there isn't a chart I am aware of that will achieve that (maybe some paid for third party one but they have inherrent problems). I did frankenstein together a solution for a similar problem using a scatter chart for the dots and a column chart for the bands which I overlaid on each other using transparent backgrounds, no axis titles on one or the other etc. Not an ideal solution but it has worked like a charm for a few years now.



// if this is a solution please mark as such. Kudos always appreciated.
