The Histogram is a summary graph showing a count of data points falling in various ranges. The effect is rough approximation of the frequency distribution of the data. while The Bar Graph shows the frequency of each element in a set of data. the height of each bar represents how many of that data element there are.

### What is the difference between population density and population distribution?

The way in which people are spread across a given area is known as population distribution. Geographers study population distribution patterns at different scales: local, regional, national, and global. Patterns of population distribution tend to be uneven. For example, in Ireland there are more people living in the south and east than in the border counties and the west. Population density is the average number of people per square kilometre. It is a way of…

For example, if you had the ages of 100 people you could do a frequency distribution and split the ages into 10 year categories and then show how many of the 100 people were in the 20s, how many in their 30s, how many in…
