histogram

(ˈhɪstəˌɡræm)
n
(Statistics) a statistical graph that represents the frequency of values of a quantity by vertical rectangles of varying heights and widths. The width of the rectangles is in proportion to the class interval under consideration, and their areas represent the relative frequency of the phenomenon in question. See also stem-and-leaf diagram
