# How to a Create Histogram in Pandas Python?

by vsasikalabe Updated: Apr 6, 2023

Solution Kit

A histogram is a graphical representation of the distribution of data. This function calls matplotlib. pyplot.hist(), on each series in the DataFrame, resulting in one histogram per column. The LP indicates the ranges of the data. Based on this, the bar graph will appear.

We can plot histograms using Matplotlib & Pandas. There are a few things to keep in mind when creating histograms in Matplotlib:

- We can create a histogram from a Pandas DataFrame using the Matplotlib plot() function.
- We can specify the number of bins using the bins parameter.
- Using the range parameter, we can specify the range of values to include in the histogram.
- We can make our histogram look nicer by using colors and adding titles and labels.

Here is how to create a histogram in pandas using Python:

### Code

In this solution we used pandas and matplotlib library of python.

### Instructions

__Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.__

- Download and Install the PyCharm Community Edition on your desktop.
- Install pandas on your IDE from python interpreter in setting options.
- Create new python file on your IDE.
- Copy the snippet using the '
**copy'**button and paste it in your python file. - Run the current file to generate the output.

I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent library, version information in the following sections.

*I found this code snippet by searching for ' **Python Histogram from pandas*' *in kandi. You can try any such use case!*

### Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

- PyCharm Community Edition 2022.3.1
- The solution is created in Python 3.11.1 Version
- pandas 1.5.2 Version
- matplotlib 3.6.2 version

Using this solution, we can do python histogram from pandas.This process also facilities an easy to use, hassle free method to create a hands-on working version of code in python which would help us to do python histogram from pandas.
