1.6 Box Plot

A box plot displays the distribution of groups of data through their five-number summaries (the minimum, twenty-fifth percentile, median, seventy-fifth percentile, and maximum). Optionally, means and outliers can be displayed as well. The following steps produce vertical box plots of weight by sex:

proc template;
   define statgraph classbox;
      begingraph;
         entrytitle 'Distribution of Weight By Sex';
         layout overlay;
            boxplot y=weight x=sex;
         endlayout;
      endgraph;
   end;
run;
