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.

Is a histogram just a bar chart?

Your x-axis will always be a range of numbers and your y-axis will always be the frequency your variable occurs.
