Distributions
Using the Distribution Platform
The Distribution platform illustrates the distribution of a single variable using histograms, additional graphs, and reports. The word univariate simply means involving one variable instead of two (bivariate) or many (multivariate). However, you can examine the distribution of several individual variables within a report. The report content for each variable changes depending on whether the variable is categorical (nominal or ordinal) or continuous.
Once you know how your data is distributed, you can plan the appropriate type of analysis going forward.
The Distribution report window is interactive. Clicking on a histogram bar highlights the corresponding data in any other histograms and in the data table. See
