I have some simple datasets that consist of a discrete integer-valued variable together with frequency counts. The frequencies vary a lot as does the value of the variable. For example one set has values from 1 to a little less than 15000 with frequencies from 1 to half a million. The small values have the many occurrences, e.g. no value higher than 10 occurs more than 50000 times whereas the values 1 through 10 together appear around 1.5 million times.
I am looking for a good kind of plot (preferably) or statistic to use for presenting and overviewing this data. What is a good choice? At the moment I am plotting a line segment from (n,0) to (n, freq) for the data point (n, freq) but due to the distribution this is not very informative.
