8.1: Box plotsBox plots were invented by Tukey for eda (exploratory data analysis). They show nonparametric statistics. The centre of the box is the median. The box edges show the first quartile (q1) and the third quartile (q3). The distance from q3 to q1 is called the interquartile range. The whiskers (lines with crosses on them) extend to the furthest points still within 1.5 interquartile ranges of q1 and q3. Beyond the whiskers, all outliers are shown, in open circles up to a distance of 3 interquartile ranges beyond q1 and q3, and in closed circles beyond that. Below is an example that uses a "new command" to define each box plot (see Adding New Commands).
