Is there a way in Microsoft Excel to give specific bins different bin widths when making a histogram plot

0 votes
I am trying to give specific bins on my histogram plot different bin widths. Is there a way to say I want bin 1 to have a width 1-10 and bin 20 to have a width of 300-1000?

Excel built-in histogram tool only allows equal bin-width. We must create instead a "variable width column chart" as explained by Jon Peltier. This can be a tedious and error-prone process if you've got a lot of bins. Video tutorial for Excel 2016. The main steps are as followed:

  1. Create a cascade table:

Input table

should turn into:

Note: dummy + Label columns aren't required, but help with labeling

  1. generates a stacked area chart (a type of Area chart)

  1. Then change the Primary Axis's category to Time-Scale to straighten the areas into bars. As explained by Jon Peltier, this is because:

This is somewhat misleading, as Excel time-scale axes only consider dates and ignore times.
