## Boxplots and Beyond III: Violin Plots

This post is the third in a series of four on boxplots and closely related data visualization techniques for comparing subsets of a dataset, or comparing different datasets that we hope or expect to be similarly distributed.  The previous two post...

## Boxplots and Beyond – Part II: Asymmetry

In my last post, I discussed boxplots in their simplest forms, illustrating some of the useful options available with the boxplot command in the open-source statistical software package R.  As I noted in that post, the basic boxplot is both useful...

## Boxplots and Beyond – Part I

Boxplots are a simple and reasonably popular way of summarizing the range of variation of a real-valued variable across different subsets of data.  Typical examples might include diastolic blood pressure across a group of patients, broken dow...

In this post I offer an alternative function for boxplot, which will enable you to label outlier observations while handling complex uses of boxplot.

## sab-R-metrics: Intermediate Boxplots and Histograms

January 20, 2011
By

Last week, I began talking about using the base graphics in R. Those graphics were pretty bland, and my hope for the next two posts is to introduce some interesting additions to the basic graphics that come from R: color, legends, lines, shapes, multiple graphs side-by-side, text, point types, and custom axes. If you have missed...

## sab-R-metrics: Beginning with Boxplots, Scatterplots, and Histograms

January 15, 2011

Today I decided to begin more with visualizations and less with basic statistical analysis for sabermetrics using R. I'm not really here to teach the ins and outs of regressions and statistical tests, so once I get there, I'm hoping that those who have read this already have a decent understanding of those subjects before implementing them. ...

## Reader suggestions on alternative ways to create combination dotplot/boxplot

October 24, 2010
By

Kudos to several of our readers, who suggested simpler ways to craft the graphical display (combination dotplot/boxplot) from our most recent example.Yihui Xie combines a boxplot with a coarsened version of the PCS scores (using the round() function) u...

## Example 8.10: Combination dotplot/boxplot (teaching graphic in honor of World Statistics Day)

October 19, 2010
By

In honor of World Statistics Day and the read paper that my co-authors Chris Wild, Maxine Pfannkuch, Matt Regan, and I are presenting at the Royal Statistical Society today, we present the R code to generate a combination dotplot/boxplot that is useful...
