Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data Lock 5 Density Curve A density curve is a theoretical model to describe a variable’s distribution. Think of a density curve as an idealized histogram, where: (1) The total area under the curve is one. (2) The proportion of the population in any interval is the area over that interval.
