Plotting Data 1: Univariate Plots

This lesson will describe the process of plotting univariate plots of the data from a csv file in Python.


A Plot is a way of representing data visually. It can describe relationships between variables. Plots can give insight and information about the data that may not have been easily derived by looking at the data as a table.

Almost every tool that works with spreadsheets can plot data. Python has a complete package dedicated for plotting data known as matplotlib. We will be using this package with pandas to plot data. In this lesson, we will discuss univariate plots. These are plots where a single variable is plotted.
