Analyze Single Variables

Single-variable graphs, or univariate graphs, let you look closely at one variable at a time. When you begin to look at your data, it’s important to learn about each variable before looking at how the variables interact with each other. Univariate graphs let you visualize each variable individually.

This section covers two graphs that show the distribution of a single variable:

Histograms, for continuous variables

Bar Charts, for categorical variables

Use the Distribution platform to create both of these graphs. Distribution produces a graphical description and descriptive statistics for each variable.
