Statistical visualization

Mathematica provides us with a wide variety of statistical plotting functions. Let's take a look at a few of them:

  • Distribution shapes

    • Histogram

    • SmoothHistogram

    • Histogram3D

    • PairedHistogram

    • DensityHistogram and so on

  • Charting

    • PieChart

    • BubbleChart

    • BarChart

    • SectorChart

    • PairedBarChart

    • 3D versions of some of these charts

  • Miscellaneous

    • Gauges, such as AngularGauge, HorizontalGauge, VerticalGauge, BulletGauge, ClockGauge, and so on

    • Financial charts, such as CandlestickChart, TradingChart, FinancialIndicator, KagiChart, RenkoChart, and so on

To visualize the distribution shapes of empirical data, Mathematica provides different kinds of histogram-plotting functions. SmoothHistogram provides a smooth estimation of the shape, whereas Histogram, Histogram3D, and PairedHistogram give a discrete shape (which is often better to understand empirical data). DensityHistogram is a plot for visualizing spatial data density.

The most common charting functions are listed next. We have already used SectorChart...
