Violin Charts

Bandwidth Selector Options

  • For interactive, exploratory visualization, you can choose one of the three feasible options described below for plotting violin chart types.
  • For option (c), you can obtain the AMISE optimal bandwidth estimate (as well as the corresponding scaling factor) in the Stats Analyzer and use the output for providing the value of the scaling factor for the slider in option (c). The computation of the optimal bandwidth estimate is too heavy and extensive to be used in interactive visualization.
(a) Silverman's Approach Using Alpha

Violin With Kernel Bandwidth= h x 0.25

(b) Silverman's Approach Using IQR

Violin With Kernel Bandwidth= h x 0.65

(c) Percentage of Sample Range
