What is a Histogram?

A histogram is a type of data visualization that demonstrates frequency within a data set. If you’ve gathered survey results or you’re determining how often something occurs, visualizing these numbers in a histogram allows you to easily pinpoint which range has your variable occur most often.

Histograms are always depicted as vertical bar charts, as the highest bar indicates the most often something occurs and are perfect for creating frequency distributions.
