The purpose of this study is to analyze the statistical distribution of the number of births by visualization analysis using various visualization tools with data. And this data is the ‘live births by age group of mother, sex and birth order period annual 1981 ∼ 2016’ on the Korean Statistical Information Service. In this study, we implemented the exploratory statistical analysis methods using R software and Microsoft Excel. We analyzed the changes in the number of births according to the changes of each age by visualization tools using various kinds of two-dimensional graphs such as pie graph, bar graph and line graph. And then the distribution of births was examined with visualization analysis using various three-dimensional graphs. Through the analysis of various exploratory visualizations, it is possible to predict the distribution of birth data and the number of births according to birth order or mother’s age.
