Continuous vs Categorical Bivariate Analysis: Boxplot & Histogram

Bivariate analysis: Bivariate histograms

In this section, we will discuss the ways in which we can analyze a continuous variable and a categorical variable together.

Bivariate analysis

Bivariate analysis is a statistical technique that encompasses exploring the relationship between two variables. Bivariate analysis can be implemented when a variable is continuous, and another is categorical, in which we are then able to determine if there is a difference in the distribution of the continuous variable for each category of the categorical variable.
