Kernel Density Estimates
In this course, you’ve been working with samples, statistically speaking. Whether the data is discrete or continuous, it’s assumed to be derived from a population that has a true, exact distribution described by just a few parameters.
A kernel density estimation (KDE) is a way to estimate the probability density function (PDF) of the random variable that underlies our sample. KDE is a means of data smoothing.
Sticking with the Pandas library, you can create and overlay density plots using
plot.kde(), which is available for both
