Resolved: Choosing the size of binwidth
How would one choose a good binwidth for histogram? What type of problems would a high binwidth be just right or too much?
thanks for reaching out! That's a great question, and choosing the right binwidth for a histogram can be a challenge. There are a couple of approaches to choosing the right size, depending on the sample size for example. Sadly, there is no one correct answer or approach, and most of the time we have to rely on our experience and fit the binwidth according to the data distribution.
