Box plots are a convenient way of visually displaying data. A box plot is split into 4 quartiles, and key information such as the average (median), smallest and largest values of a data set and percentiles can be spotted immediately. Additionally, Box plots can provide information about the spread of data and hence show how consistent a data set is, thus making it a useful statistical tool for comparing data sets. Box plots can be created from a list of numbers by ordering the numbers and finding the median and lower and upper quartiles.
