HistogramScale

As of Version 7.0, HistogramScale has been superseded by an optional argument hspec for the built-in Wolfram Language function Histogram.

HistogramScale

is an option of histogram functions that specifies the way in which the bar heights are to be scaled.

Details

  • To use HistogramScale, you first need to load the Histograms Package using Needs["Histograms`"].
  • HistogramScale->Automatic does not scale the bar heights when there are equally sized intervals.
  • HistogramScale->Automatic scales the bar heights by the interval sizes when the intervals are not equally sized.
  • HistogramScale->True always scales the bar heights by the interval sizes regardless of whether the interval sizes are equal.
  • HistogramScale->k scales bar heights so that the bar areas or bar volumes sum to the positive number k.
  • HistogramScale->1 gives a probability density plot.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

By default each bar height corresponds to the number of values in the interval:

Use HistogramScale->1 to get a probability density:
