Hi everyone!
I am not used to use QlikVio. Actually, this techonolgy is new for me, but in the future I will use it more often. Could you give some help?
I am lost in the midle of so much information and I am still trying to figure out how to work with this program. Can you give me the steps how to do a simple histogram?
I have a Data with numbers from 0 to 20. I want to do a histogram which counts how many numbers are in specifics times periods, such as:
]0,1[
]1,2[
]2,3[
]3,6[
]6,10[
]10,20[. How can I do it? I tried to calculate an dimension using if and then do a count for the data but it doesnt work.
I will grateful if some one could help me out.
Thanks in advance,
Best,
Pedro Pereira
Solved! Go to Solution.
The odd bin of '>10' doesn't allow for easy sorting so you have to get creative with 'Dual', then sort numerically;
=
If(Diferença<=1 ,Dual('0-1',0),
If(Diferença>1 and Diferença <=2,Dual('1-2',1),
If(Diferença>2 and Diferença <=3,Dual('2-3',2),
If(Diferença>3 and Diferença <=4,Dual('3-4',3),
If(Diferença>4 and Diferença <=5,Dual('4-5',4),
If(Diferença>5 and Diferença <=6,Dual('5-6',5),
If(Diferença>6 and Diferença <=7,Dual('6-7',6),
If(Diferença>7 and Diferença <=8,Dual('7-8',7),
If(Diferença>8 and Diferença <=9,Dual('8-9',8),
If(Diferença>9 and Diferença <=10,Dual('9-10',9),
If(Diferença>10,Dual('>10',10)
)))))))))))
This is the script you need
AAA:
LOAD * Inline [
Field
'0,1'
'1,2'
'2,3'
'3,6'
'6,10'
'10,20'
];
BBB: NoConcatenate
LOAD Field, Mid(Field, Index(Field, ',')+1)-Left(Field, Index(Field, ',')-1) as difference Resident AAA;
DROP Table AAA;
First, thanks for your answear!
Assuming I am a newbie, could you elaborate more about the objects (Inline, difference)? Could you explian in more detail?
What does "field" stand off? Where do you the count on your script?
Sorry to bother you that much, but as I said this software is new for me.
You can load data from Database, External files or in memory, this is the case of Load * inline Syntax,
I'm loading a field called Field with the values listed below.
Then I load again the same data (BBB) but I add a field:
... Mid(Field, Index(Field, ',')+1)-Left(Field, Index(Field, ',')-1) as difference ...
Where
Index(Field, ',') return the position of the comma between the couple of data (ex. 1,2 index returns 2, the position of comma)
Mid(...) returns a string from position Index(Field, ',')+1 to the end of the string (Field) so it returns for the first record 2
Left(...) returns a string from the starting point to the position Index(Field, ',')-1
So now I have the 2 numbers and do first-second as difference
hope this helps
I Hoped at least I was helpful ... could you mark?
Yes, you were. I rephrase again it is the first time I use this software.
I still havent figure out how to do the histogram from your script. Hopefully I will.
Thanks again anyway.
This is not as simple as it should be. I have a data with numbers which ranges from 0 to 20. And I have to do a chart/histogram and display/count the number between some specific intervals such as: 1 to 3, 3 to 4, 4,to 7 and 7 to 20.
How can I do that?
Hi Pedro,
To create a histogram you need to use the Class function in dimension. If your field is called AgeOfPerson then the expression you would use as the dimension expression would be something like this:
=class(AgeOfPerson ,3,'Age')
this means take the field call AgeofPerson and split it up into groups of 3 years. When writing the results use the word 'Age' between the values, e.g. 0<=Age<3
I've also attached an example with some data I had handy (it uses Salaries).

Hello,
The steps to create a Histogram,
You should now have a histogram. If you have too few bars, you need to make the bin width smaller. If you have too many, you should make it bigger. In order to make the histogram more elaborate you can also do the following:
With these changes, you can quickly assess whether the measurements are normally distributed or whether there are some anomalies.
Pedro,
It sounds like a histogram is not what you're really looking for, but rather a chart that has specific inconsistent bucket sizes; 1-3, 3-4, 4-7 and 7-20.
In the script;
Load
If(Field<3,'1-3',
If(Field>3 and Field <=4,'3-4',
If(Field>4 and Field <=7,'4-7',
If(Field>7 and Field <=20,'7-20')))) as Bucket
From <Your Data>;
Then in a bar chart use Bucket as Dimension and Count(Bucket) as Expression. Then, sort Bucket by Text.
HTH,
John
