The Histogram tool provides a histogram for the empirical cumulative distribution of a single numeric field by showing the frequencies of records falling in a set of continuous value ranges. Optionally, it provides a smoothed empirical density plot. Frequencies are displayed when a density plot is not selected, and probabilities when this option is selected. The number of breaks can be set by the user, or determined automatically using the method of Sturges (which is described in the cited Wikipedia article on histograms).
This tool uses the R programming language. Go to Options > Download Predictive Tools to install R and the packages used by the R Tool.
An Alteryx data stream.
Graph resolution: Select the resolution of the graph in dots per inch: 1x (96 dpi); 2x (192 dpi); or 3x (288 dpi). Lower resolution creates a smaller file and is best for viewing on a monitor. Higher resolution creates a larger file with better print quality.
An output stream with one record and two fields: Report which contains an Alteryx graph and Desc that has the value "Histogram", to assist in the development of specialized reports.
