Box and Whisker Chart

Component Palette Icon:


A Box and Whisker chart displays pertinent statistical information about sets of data. Each box represents a set of numbers. The upper and lower bounds of the box represent the 1st and 3rd quartiles. The line inside the box represents the median. The extends of the "whiskers" represent the max and min outliers. For a more detailed description, see

The configuration for setting up a box and whisker chart, like most charts, is populating the Data property. The dataset for a box and whisker chart contains sets of numbers. Each column defines a series of values, for which a "box" will be calculated. The column headers define the name for the box. You may also have an optional first column that is a String column, which can break up the series into categories.
