    Statistics question. My memory fails me!

    Hey everyone, thanks for coming! It's been quite a few years since I took statistics and I am now trying to use it, but can't remember the term of a certain statistical chart. Can you help me out? The closest I can come to remembering it is separating data into "buckets"?

    Say I have a data set that contains a range of dates. I want to make a graph that separates the data into sets and graph the total in each set (bucket?). For example, I want the dates to be separated into two week intervals, like 2/1/2007 through 2/14/2007 is one "bucket", 2/15/2007 through 2/28/2007 is the second "bucket."

    What is this called?! It's driving me nuts because I have it on the tip of my tongue!

    Thanks for your assistance.

    xvart.

    A bar graph? ...Perhaps a series of bar graphs?

    Yes! Bins. That's it! I was so close, lol. And histogram. Thanks, guys.

    I am going to use "donator" powers and close this thread since the question has been answered.
