I am trying to create the picture below in Tikz. What I am most unsure of is how to make the histogram below. It does not need to have the exact same shape, but a similar shape to the histogram below. Unfortunately I don't have the underlying dataset. What is the best way to make this in Tikz?

  • You can produce such things easily with pgplots by adding two axis on top of each other with one being an ybar plot and the other an ordinary plot.

This is to give you a start.

 \begin{axis}[ybar,bar width=2.7mm,ylabel={Number of policies},yticklabel=$\mathsf{\pgfmathprintnumber{\tick}}$,
 xticklabel=$\mathsf{\pgfmathprintnumber{\tick}}$,xlabel={Score based on \dots}]
  \addplot[samples=50,domain=0:100,fill=yellow!20] {25*x*x*x*exp(-x/10)*(0.9+0.2*rnd)};
 \begin{axis}[axis y line=right,ylabel={Actual loss ratio},xtick=\empty,ymax=200,ymin=0,
  \addplot[samples=50,domain=0:100] {180-1.6*x+20*(rnd-0.5)};
