When viewing a visual showing the distribution of a value across a category (for example, sales by product type), users can ask Power BI to show what other factors affect this distribution. This helps identify the impact on a metric without manually having to break down by each factor to experiment and find the impact.

When you find a chart that you want to understand further, right-click on a datapoint and select Analyze > Explain the distribution. This will show a variety of charts breaking down the distribution by different factors, filtered to values that have the biggest difference from the original distribution. You can choose the different filters in the chiclets at the top to view the other values that significantly change the distribution.
