# Example: Sub series in stacked bar plot

Published 2014-03-28 | Author: Elke Schubert

Two series will be shown in a bar plot. Additionally, they contain sub series, which we would like to plot in the same diagram. So we just need a 2D plot. We will shift the series to achieve that.

Do you have a question regarding this example, TikZ or LaTeX in general? Just ask in the LaTeX Forum.
