Box and Whisker Plots 8322 Views

Box-and-whisker plots are a handy way to display data broken into four quartiles, each with an equal number of data values. The box-and-whisker plot doesn't show frequency, and it doesn't display each individual statistic, but it clearly shows where the middle of the data lies. It's a nice plot to use when analyzing how your data is skewed. And the name reminds of this cute cat video we saw last week. We love cats.
