Box Chart is a convenient way of graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their quartiles. It provides a visual representation of statistical data based on the minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum. Outliers can be plotted on Box Charts as individual points.
A violin plot is a hybrid of a box plot and a kernel density plot, which shows peaks in the data. It is used to visualize the distribution of numerical data. Unlike a box plot that can only show summary statistics, violin plots depict summary statistics and the density of each variable.
A histogram is a chart that groups numeric data into bins, displaying the bins as segmented columns. They’re used to depict the distribution of a dataset: how often values fall into ranges.
