Cumulative Histograms

The cumulative option adds each bucket's count or frequency to the running total, so that the right-most bucket reports the total count or 1 (100%), depending on whether the normalized histogram option is active.

  1. In the Settings modal window, under the Basic tab, select Cumulative histogram.
