A dot plot is a frequency histogram that depicts data dispersion. When you only have a few discrete values, use a dot plot or a frequency histogram. Your dot plot will appear like this if your data contains too many distinct values. Instead, use a histogram to visualise your data.

Dot plots are used for data visualisation in the same way that bar graphs and line graphs are. These graphs are used to visually represent particular data trends or groups. The two main forms of dot plots are the Cleveland and Wilkinson dot plots.

  • They're a quick and easy way to represent frequencies and proportions.
  • They are more thorough since density distribution and outliers in data points are highlighted.
  • Using od colour and size, you can add additional data density to dot plots, resulting in what we call bubble dots.
