Notes
  • eqprhistogram shows a histogram constructed so that each bar represents the same fraction of the data. As an example, suppose we calculate the minimum, the lower quartile, the median, the upper quartile and the maximum of a variable. These 5 quantiles allow us to draw a histogram with 4 bars, each representing 1/​4 of the total (possibly weighted) frequency, or of the total probability 1. The height of each bar representing the average probability density in each interval should be 1 /​ 4 * (upper quantile - lower quantile). eqprhistogram refuses to draw graphs when the quantiles calculated are not distinct. This is likely with categorical or discrete or highly rounded data, especially as the number of quantiles approaches the number of values.
