You can change the y-axis to a percentage scale. When you create a plot, click Plot Options. On an existing plot, click the plot and choose Editor > Graph Options. Select Show Y as Percent, and choose one of the following options.
Across all x-categories
The sum of all plotted values is 100%. For example, in this plot, the sum of all nine plotted values is 100%.
Within each x-category
The sum of the plotted values within each x-category is 100%. Use this option if you want to standardize within categories and accentuate differences. For example, in this plot, the sum of the three plotted values at each level of Temperature is 100%.
