In creating histograms,i read a term called
"skewed data columns",Can anyone explain me what does it mean in detail with an example?
why dont you look it up in the docs, where it is explained?
It's explained in any doc,thats why i'm posting here.If you know,please explain.what exactly skewed column,means.
SQL> create table emp (ename varchar2(50), esex varchar2(10));
SQL> insert into emp select object_name,'Male' from dba_objects;
9369 rows created.
SQL> insert into emp select object_name,'Female' from dba_objects where rownum < 20;
19 rows created.
SQL> select esex,count(*) from emp
