Range - Numerical Binning

Numerical bins or range for numeric question type

Numerical Binning is a way to group a number of more or less continuous values into a smaller number of "bins". Creating range or bins will help to understand the numerical data better.For example, if you have data about a group of people, you might want to arrange their ages into a smaller number of age intervals. Creating age bins will further help you to understand the nature of a particular age groups created.

Where can I see the histogram?

Once the Range is created in edit survey collect the responses for the survey.Visualization of the range created can be viewed in the Dashboard. Go to:
