Histogram[data,"Log"] will generate an histogram with a log scale on the x axis, but I need a LogLog scale, is it possible?

    $\begingroup$ Naively, I would just take the log of the y-values before you make the histogram. $\endgroup$

You can use the form Histogram[data, {"Log", bspec}, {"Log", hspec}], where {"Log", bspec} applies binning bspec on log-transformed data, and {"Log", hspec} gives log-transformed height specification.


data = RandomVariate[LogNormalDistribution[10, 1], 1000];

Histogram[data,{"Log", 10}, {"Log", "Count"}]

Compare with

Histogram[data, 10, "Count"]
