Adding Numeric Equal Density Bucketing

Numeric data is represented as a continuous set of values in displays and filters. Sometimes it may be necessary to divide the data into equal density bucket subsets. This can be achieved with Equal Density bucketing.

Adding Numeric Equal Density Bucketing

  1. Right-click on the numeric field, and select New Bucketing Column…

The Create Bucketing Column dialog displays.

  1. Then set Bucketing Mode to Equal Density, and complete the Name, and number of buckets, and click OK.

Once added, the new Equal Distance bucket column will appear in the output data schema.

For this example, the minimum value of the Source Column (1 Day Change %) is -0.35 and the maximum value is 0.21. When there are three buckets, the ranges will be:

    • -0.11, -0.03

    • -0.03, -0.01

    • -0.01, 0.09

This can then be used in a visualization breakdown to display data samples.
