Remarks

A histogram stores the number of occurrences of a value (called the count) within a set of ranges (called bins). It is the natural system to store discrete univariate data. The natural system to store continuous univariate data is the Sample class, but often histograms are also used for continuous data, for example because there is too much data to record each value individually.
