# How can I display empirical pdf of my 100x1 vector data in Matlab?

I have a data which is 100x1 vector. How can I display its empirical pdf in Matlab? Also, if I want to compare the pdf of three vectors on the same graph, then how to do that?

Right now I am using pdfplot.m file to plot my empirical pdf, however when I want to compare the 3 distributions by using 'hold on', then firstly its not working and secondly all the distributions are in same color. Thanks!

Also, I don't want to plot cdf or histogram.

the problem is that histc plots bars instead of, say lines; the bars are plotted over one another. you should edit pdfplot to plot lines instead. look for the hist command and alter it.

Thanks! It is solved now, though with hist only. –  Pupil Sep 29 '10 at 22:14
[f,x] = ksdensity(mat1(:,1));
