# BoxWhiskerPlot

 BoxWhiskerPlot[data]creates a box-and-whisker plot of the given vector of data. BoxWhiskerPlot[data1, data2, ...] creates multiple box-and-whisker plots. BoxWhiskerPlot[matrix]also creates multiple box-and-whisker plots, with each column of the matrix used for a separate box.
• BoxWhiskerPlot creates a plot with a box that spans the distance between two quantiles surrounding the median with lines ("whiskers") that extend to span either the full data set or the data set excluding outliers.
• The default box spans from the .25 quantile to the .75 quantile.
• Quantiles used are equivalent to those computed using Quantile.
• Near outliers are defined as points beyond times the interquantile range from the edge of the box. Far outliers are defined as points beyond three times that range.
• BoxWhiskerPlot has the same options as Graphics, with the following additions and changes:
 BoxExtraSpacing 0 extra space to place between boxes BoxLabels Automatic labels for the boxes BoxLineStyle Automatic styles to use for lines in the graph BoxMedianStyle Automatic additional styles for the median line BoxOrientation Vertical orientation of the plot BoxOutliers None which outliers to indicate BoxOutlierMarkers Automatic markers for outlier points BoxQuantile 0.25 distance of quantile from median for box edges BoxFillingStyle Automatic colors to use for the boxes Frame True whether to put a frame around the plot
• Valid settings for BoxQuantile are numbers between zero and 0.5.
