The histogram is suitable for visualizing distribution of numerical data over a continuous interval, or a certain time period. The data is divided into bins, and each bar in a histogram represents the tabulated frequency at each bin.
Number of columns (dimensions and measures)
You can only apply a single dimension to a histogram. The dimension must be a numerical field. Histograms do not need a measure, as the frequency of the binned data is automatically calculated.
Default settings for a histogram
Most native Qlik Sense chart types are automatically sorted on the dimension content:
- Numeric content is numerically sorted.
- Categorical content is alphabetically sorted.
