Hello, I have questions regarding bin width:
- How to determine the right bin width when creating the graphs?
- What kind of graphs use bin width? I think except scatter plot?
More explanation about bin width would be highly appreciated.
First the bin width is usually used for a histogram. A scatter plot does not have bin width, as there are no bins involved.
Usually we are talking about a histgoram.
The bin width itself really depends on your problem.
I am usually aiming for number of bins (and not a specific bin width). 5 to 10 bins are optimal for most problems.
Hi Iliya, thank you! I will try to use 5 – 10 for the number of bins on my data.
