Suppose that we are interested in the relative frequency of values between 30 and 59. 5621. 3 Grouped Data — The Frequency Distribution We may display a frequency distribution (or a relative frequency distribution) graphically in the form of a histogram, which is a special type of bar graph. 2. When we construct a histogram the values of the variable under consideration are represented by the horizontal axis, while the verticat axis has as its scale tlk frequency (or relative frequency if desired) of occurrence.

When leaves consist of more than one digit, all digits after the first may be deleted. Decimals when present in the original data are omitted in the stem-and-leaf display. 3 Grouped Data —The Frequency Distribution 25 leaves by a vertical line. Thus we see that a stem-and-leaf display is also an ordered array of the data. Stem-and-leaf displays are most effective with relatively small data sets. As a rule they are not suitable for use in annual reports or other communications aimed at the general public.
