frequency distribution



Number of times a given quantity (or group of quantities) occurs in a set of data. For example, the frequency distribution of income in a population would show how many individuals (or households) have the income of a certain level (say, $5,000 a month). It is plotted either as a step-column chart (histogram) or as a line-chart (histograph). See also distribution.
