Box plot interpretation

Postby k4k4shi » Tue Jan 20, 2015 9:23 am


Can someone explain this box plot to me?
Is it correct?
I searched the internet and found that the reason for number 5 to be like that is because there is very few data. But, Is data of village no 2 correct? Why is there no lower quartile?
Noob at maths and statistics

The box plot is generally used to display the "spread" of the data as well as outliers

Have you checked the SPSS Help
