Histogram is a bar chart, in which you centralise collected data in categories.

A histogram is clearly arranged, you can create it a fast way and a potential deterioration of variance is clearly visible.

With a histogram, you are able to illustrate frequency distribution of metrical scaled attributes. Distribution takes place in bins, which have a contant or a variable width.

You may use text and symbols for illustration for a histogram.
