Using Absolute breakdown mode for analysis

The absolute breakdown mode presents each measurement by its raw values, without any consideration to other measurements or categories.

The absolute values are displayed in both the visualizations and measurement labels. Specific visualization results also depend on data selections and visualization settings, such as group-views, axis scales and extents.

In the sample chart shown above,

  • Different colors show different property types as selected using the comparison tool. Both the top data status panel, as well as the pop-up for room type describe the meaning of the colors.
  • Since the breakdown mode is absolute, both the chart visualization and pop-up display the count of listings per property type within each room type. For example, of the listings with a private room, 599 of them are townhouses.


  • The absolute breakdown is the default mode of data analysis in Keshif and is supported by all measurement functions.
