Histogram

Representation of frequency distribution by means of rectangles whose widths represent class intervals and whose heights represent the corresponding frequencies. A histogram can, for example, represent the variation among individuals in a sample, with each interval bar representing the frequency of each value or range of values; often used to compare a variable’s distribution to a normal distribution.
