A density plot shows the distribution of a numerical variable. It takes only set of numeric values as input. It is really close to a histogram. Since it is a really common dataviz technique,

most of the dataviz libraries allow to draw it. Note that it is highly recommended to play with the bandwith argument in order not to miss a specific pattern in the data. Note that you can compare the

distribution of several variablesplotting them on the same axis, using faceting or through a joyplot.
