The chart shows the distribution of price over the t0 and t1 periods.
For reasons of performance, the dataset can be sampled down if it is larger that a set number of rows.
The sampling is required to preserve performance and brings all dataset down to a set number of rows. If your dataset is very large, this could limit the significance of the distribution plots.
To preserve performance, only one dimension will be plotted at a time. You can choose which dimension to plot with this widget.
In accordance to the IBCS standard notation the most recent, measured, Actual data is plotted dark grew while the past (example previous year) data is plotted light grey. Plan data is also plotted light gray (instead of white boxed) due to technical limitations.
The plot is run at the total plotted data level.
A sub plot is also run for each dimension.
By clicking on a legend value you can highlight that value on the charts.
