Distribution Plotguide > Visualizations > Distribution Plot
The Distribution Plot is an innovative variation of the box plot visualization method. It is similar to a vertical Bar Chart but it excels at showing how data items that belong to a cluster are distributed according to an indicator. Each cluster is represented as one row of dots, and these dots are a representation of each data item belonging to this cluster. The mean value is represented as a thin green line for each country. This component is based on the premise that each data item belongs to a cluster. It is a good way to visualize the differences within a cluster; showing the minimum, maximum and mean value as well as the interval of the values in the cluster. Use the menu on the left side to change which indicator to be visualized and use the green scroll bar on the top to "zoom" in on interesting areas.
