Block Histogram

Screenshot for 'Block Histogram'
A block histogram lets you see the distribution of numeric values in a data set. The x-axis is divided into 'bins' that correspond to value ranges. Each item in the data set is drawn as a rectangular block, and the blocks are piled into the bins to show how many values in each range. To see the exact value of a block move your mouse over it. If you are charting more than one dimension use the menu at the bottom of the graph to choose which to show. You can also highlight a block by clicking - use control-click to highlight more than one, and click again to deselect). Highlights are helpful for pointing to particular items when you make a comment or following a particular item as you change the x-axis using the menu at bottom.

histogram, conditioning plot

Conditioning plot

Screenshot for 'Conditioning plot'
A visualisation to display a variable distribution conditional on the distribution of at least a second variable. In the example, the number of breaks is displayed conditional on the type of wool and the level of tension.

Double conditioning-plot

Screenshot for 'Double conditioning-plot'
A conditioning plot with splines added. It allows the visualisation of a variable distribution conditional on the values of the relevant groups of interest.

High density regions

Screenshot for 'High density regions'
Plot of the probability density function with emphasis on the highest densities.

Competitiveness Index in rural areas, 2006. The distribution curve in each graph hints at the overall performance and the spread of scores. The skew to the left or higher ranks on both the Overall Index of Competitiveness and the Input measures and the shorter tail confirming greater signs of health in rural local authorities on these measures, than the skew to the right or lower ranks and longer tail on the Output and Outcome measures.
