-> Boxplot
-> Frequency Table
-> Histogram 
-> Density Plot

Loading Libraries

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import seaborn as sns
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

Loading Data

data = pd.read_csv("../data/state.csv")
# Adding a new column with derived data 
data['PopulationInMillions'] = data['Population']/1000000
print (data.head(10))

Output :

  • Histogram: It is a way of visualizing data distribution through frequency table with bins on the x-axis and data count on the y-axis.

    Code – Histogram

    # Histogram Population In Millions
    fig, ax2 = plt.subplots()
    ax2 = sns.distplot(data.PopulationInMillions, kde = False)
    ax2.set_ylabel("Frequency", fontsize = 15)
    ax2.set_xlabel("Population by State in Millions", fontsize = 15)
    ax2.set_title("Population - Histogram", fontsize = 20)

    Output :

  • Density Plot: It is related to histogram as it shows data-values being distributed as continuous line. It is a smoothed histogram version. The output below is the density plor superposed over histogram.

    Code – Density Plot for the data

    # Density Plot - Population
    fig, ax3 = plt.subplots()
    ax3 = sns.distplot(data.Population, kde = True)
    ax3.set_ylabel("Density", fontsize = 15)
    ax3.set_xlabel("Murder Rate per Million", fontsize = 15)
    ax3.set_title("Desnsity Plot - Population", fontsize = 20)
