Histogram

### PowerPoint Presentation:

A histogram is "a representation of a frequency distribution by means of rectangles whose widths represent class intervals and whose areas are proportional to the corresponding frequencies What is a Histogram ?

### PowerPoint Presentation:

It was first introduced by Karl Pearson. In statistics a histogram is a graphical representation showing a visual impression of the distribution of data. Histogram

### PowerPoint Presentation:

The variate values are taken along X-axis and frequency along Y-axis and the rectangle is constructed. contd :-

### PowerPoint Presentation:

When there is a lot of data. When data is Continuous ( mass, height, volume, time etc) Presented in a Grouped Frequency Distribution usually in groups or classes that are UNEQUAL Why use a Histogram ?

### PowerPoint Presentation:

NO GAPS between Bars Continuous data

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Bars are different in width Determined by Grouped Frequency Distribution

### PowerPoint Presentation:

AREA is proportional to FREQUENCY NOT height, because of UNEQUAL classes So we use FREQUENCY DENSITY = Frequency Class width

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Example:- Draw a histogram for the distribution as shown in the table Data Range Frequency 0-10 1 10-20 3 20-30 6 30-40 4 40-50 2

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Histogram for the distribution of age

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Sensible Scales Bases correctly aligned Plot the Class Boundaries Heights correct Frequency Density Drawing

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Part of the power of histograms is that they allow us to analyze extremely large datasets by reducing them to a single graph that can show primary, secondary and tertiary peaks in data as well as give a visual representation of the statistical significance of those peaks. How Shall We Look at Histograms

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Histograms are a great way to show results of continuous data, such as: Weight Height How much time etc . conclusion
