Notes

  • Each Y column of data is represented as a separate box. The column names or labels supply the X axis tick labels. By default, the box is determined by the 25th and 75th percentiles. The whiskers are determined by the 5th and 95th percentiles.
  • If you have multiple boxes, you can go to the Group tab to enable Subgrouping. You can also create a grouped box chart directly from either indexed data or raw data.
  • Many variations are supported, such as Interval plot and Scatter Interval, Bar chart, Box chart or Bar chart with Normal distribution curve, Box chart or Bar chart with data points overlapped.
