Hello all,
I have a set of data I am plotting on an histogram. Because I don't want to completely remove the outliers in my dataset, I manually changed the outlier values to some capped value and created the histogram normally. However, now I want to change the x-axis label for the first column, and last column to show that they might contain outliers. For example, instead of "5", which is generated automatically, it should be "<5". Is there a way to do this?

You could change the X labels using the xticklabels function.
I'll include a simple example of one way you could achieve this.
% Genreate random data
data = randi(5,[1,100]);
% reclassify extreme values
% create historgram (categorical data seems to match your data)
% change x tick labels
xticklabels(["<2" "3" ">4"]);
