The chart tool often creates inaccurately sized shapes. This is especially noticeable in pie charts.

Illustrator 2023. Pie chart generated with data: 20 20 16 15 8 8 5 3 2 1 1 1 1 1 0 0
1% segments are not proportionate.
Agree with comments below.
Very disappointing that Adobe is aware of the bug, but still haven't fixed it after all this time :(

Very disappointing that Adobe agreed that this is a problem four years ago and yet has not addressed the problem. I guess that goes along with not fixing any problems with the charting tool for decades.

The problem is still not fixed (version 26.3.1).
In a pie chart with the values 4, 4, 4, 88, the first three spikes are not the same size.

In pie charts Illustrator is not plotting pie charts correctly. You'll see from the screen shot that the same figures are not plotting the same way. It's obviously more noticeable when the same figure is next to each other.
This has been happening for too long. We need more updates to the charting tools for those that use them day in and day out. Please can we get this fixed. It's making my life a nightmare.
Segments that should be displaying as the same size appearing at a range of different sizes is completely maddening, along with when the pie charts don't close up properly and leave a slither of a gap at the end.
Why do charts never get any attention in the updates? These comments are from three years ago, it was 'Added to Backlog' two years ago, and its still happening.
The last 4 segments of this screenshot all have the value 1, all 4 are noticeably different sizes.

I've noticed this problem on several occasions. It means you can't use the app at all since there's no way to correct the problem. Attached is the problem in action. Two sets of two pieces. Each set should have two pieces of the same size, but they're off. Especially the small pieces. Illustrator becomes useless for making graphs.

Fantastic. Thank you!
we are able to reproduce the issue at our end and are looking into this.
