Select one (1) column from a dataset with whole non-negative integers. A good dataset to use would be the Uniform (0,100) dataset. Warning: You may get unexpected results if you use character data or other non-numeric data.
This web application creates a stem-and-leaf plot.
A stem-and-leaf plot is a quick and handy way to visualize the spread of a dataset using only pencil and paper. The idea is to list a column of numbers, usually 0 to 9. These are the "stems". For each value in the dataset, we pair its right-most digit to the corresponding stem that matches it's left digit. For example, if we had a
76 in our dataset, we would pair it with the
7 leaf in the column of numbers from 0 to 9. We then place a 6 as the first "leaf" in that column. We repeat this process for each value in our dataset. In the end, we will get a stem-and-leaf plot like the one seen below.
0 | 8
2 | 14
3 | 4
4 | 59
5 | 01
6 | 3
9 | 4
The way the app generates the stem-and-leaf plot for your dataset may be different.
The stem-and-leaf plot allows us to see where data may be aggregated.
Use the app above to select a dataset with whole numbers. The app will output the dataset's stem-and-leaf plot once Submit is clicked.
