# Datasets

Datasets are different series of data.

# Add Datasets

To add multiple datasets simply add more than one <td> tag to each of your <tr> tags.








 
 
 
 
 



 
 
 
 
 





<table class="charts-css column">

  <caption> Front End Developer Salary </caption>

  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <th scope="row"> Asia </th>
      <td style="--size: calc( 20 / 100 );"> <span class="data"> $20K </span> </td>
      <td style="--size: calc( 30 / 100 );"> <span class="data"> $30K </span> </td>

It is also recommended to add a legend and labels to describe the datasets.

<ul class="charts-css legend">
  <li> 1st year </li>
  <li> 2nd year </li>
  <li> 3rd year </li>
  <li> 4th year </li>
  <li> 5th year </li>
</ul>

As you can see we have an issue with colors in our datasets. Continue reading to see how to solve the issue.

# Datasets Colors

By default, Charts.css assumes you use a single dataset. The framework uses different colors for each data record.

On charts with multiple datasets you should add the .multiple class to make the framework use different color for each dataset.
