## Histogram in Qlik Sense

I am looking at the histogram chart in Qlik Sense and cannot see where to add a measure in the Data properties panel on the right hand side. All I can see is 'Fields' but no 'Measures'.

Also, how do you how do you select a particular dimension value in the field?

I have Country as Dimension and Age as measure.  I wanted to do a histogram for a particular country e.g. Norway with Age as a measure and show the median age on the histogram.

Any ideas?

What you describe is a bar chart with Country as Dimension and median Age as measure. You can create this easily in Qlik Sense: Just drag a bar chart into the sheet.

A histogram is different - it is special type of bar chart: A histogram always takes one field only as parameter - the dimension is the field grouped, like Class(Age,10) and the measure is the frequency of the field, i.e. Count(Age). A histogram will show how the field values are distributed.

Hi Henric,

I require a histogram for a particular dimension value instead of a bar chart.

Thanks
