Growing in popularity

Waterfall charts have been around for a long time, but they seem to have grown in popularity over the past few years as companies try to find simple ways to display their data walks.  These graphs do a tremendous job of quickly showing different variance buckets between two data points (typically over a period of time - sometimes called a "data walk").  The single thing that trips many analysts up is the complexity surrounding the setup and formatting of these graphs.
