Box Plot

Box Plot

A Box Plot is useful for visualizing the distribution of data based on the following five groupings: lower quartile, upper quartile, minimum, maximum, and median. It is similar to a histogram, but is usually better for showing several simultaneous comparisons-such as data grouped by month, etc.

Required dataset format:
One or two columns. The second column must be numeric.

Column 1 Column 2

2015-01 45649

For more information on the uses and best practices see our tutorial on box plots.
