written by Allan Rossman and Beth Chance
This applet demonstrates the impact of data bin width on the display of information in histograms. The user is able to control the bin width and the axes of the histogram with the resultant changes shown immediately. There are two data sets available for use, and the user can edit the data or create new data sets.

This is part of a larger collection of applets on statistics from the California Poly San Luis Obispo.
