Waterfall Chart

A Waterfall Chart is a form of data visualization that helps in understanding the cumulative effect of sequentially introduced positive or negative values. The waterfall chart is also known as a flying bricks chart or Mario chart due to the apparent suspension of columns (bricks) in mid-air. The Waterfall Chart is used to show how an initial value is increased and decreased by a series of intermediate values, leading to a final value.
