If the data does not change continuously, it is called discrete data, and is commonly compared by use of a bar chart.

Technical note: please note the use of the word chart, graph is commonly misused in a mathematical sense like this. A graph, mathematically, is a series/group of nodes that represent information and are connected by lines/edges that represent a link to other information. Bar graphs, line graphs, histogram graphs, bubble graphs, area graphs etc, are all technically chartsnot graphs. For more info see the link below on graph theory.
