What are bins in Tableau?

Tableau bins are analogous to containers that are of equal size and that store data values corresponding to the bin size.

The bins group a set of data into groups of equal size. This gives a systematic distribution of data.

In Tableau, we can take data from any discrete field and create bins. Although, Tableau users mostly use measure fields to create numeric bins.

Bins are very useful in data analysis as they provide a systematic data range that helps us organize information better and discover patterns easily. Bins are created by using calculated fields in Tableau.
