**Why does my Excel not have box and whisker plot?**

EXCEL does not have a built-in chart type to create box and whiskers plots. They can be created, however, by an interesting modification of an EXCEL stock chart, specifically the Open-High-Low-Close chart. An example box and whiskers plot is shown in the companion spreadsheet.

### How do you plot side-by-side Boxplots?

Making Side-by-Side Boxplots Using Minitab

- Put your data values in two of the columns of the Minitab worksheet.
- Add variable names in the gray boxes just above the data values.
- Click on “Graph” and then click on “Boxplot”.
- Under “Multiple Y’s” make sure “Simple” is highlighted and then click on “OK”.

### What is the first step to create this box and whisker plot?

The first step in constructing a box-and-whisker plot is to first find the median (Q2), the lower quartile (Q1) and the upper quartile (Q3) of a given set of data. You are now ready to find the interquartile range (IQR). The interquartile range is the difference between the upper quartile and the lower quartile.

**Why my Excel does not have box and whisker plot?**

**How do you make a box and whisker plot in Excel 2013?**

While Excel 2013 doesn’t have a chart template for box plot, you can create box plots by doing the following steps:

- Calculate quartile values from the source data set.
- Calculate quartile differences.
- Create a stacked column chart type from the quartile ranges.
- Convert the stacked column chart to the box plot style.

## In which scenario would you use side by side Boxplots?

Scenario 2: To compare two or more distributions. Side-by-side box plots allow us to visualize the differences between two or more distributions and compare the median values and the spread of values between distributions.

## How box plot is calculated?

Plot a symbol at the median and draw a box between the lower and upper quartiles. Calculate the interquartile range (the difference between the upper and lower quartile) and call it IQ. The line from the lower quartile to the minimum is now drawn from the lower quartile to the smallest point that is greater than L1.

**What are the five numbers used to create a box and whisker plot?**

A box and whisker plot—also called a box plot—displays the five-number summary of a set of data. The five-number summary is the minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum.

**How many variables are in a box plot?**

five values

A box plot is constructed from five values: the minimum value, the first quartile, the median, the third quartile, and the maximum value.

### What are whisker plots used for?

Description. A Box and Whisker Plot (or Box Plot) is a convenient way of visually displaying the data distribution through their quartiles. The lines extending parallel from the boxes are known as the “whiskers”, which are used to indicate variability outside the upper and lower quartiles.

### How do you read a whisker plot?

The far left of the chart (at the end of the left “whisker”) is the minimum (the smallest number in the set) and the far right is the maximum (the largest number in the set). Finally, the median is represented by a vertical bar in the center of the box. Box plots aren’t used that much in real life.

**How do you find Q1 and Q3 in Excel?**

Calculating Interquartile Range Excel

- Select the cell, where we want to get the value of Q1. Then type =Quartile(array,1).
- Now, calculate the value of Q3 the same way. Use the same formula, type =Quartile(array,3).
- Now, select the cell where you want to display the value or IQR in excel.
- You can use a much faster way.
