Syntax

graph_name.setbpelem element_list

The element_list may contain one or more of the following:

median, med / -median, -med | [Show / Do not show] the medians. |

mean / -mean | [Show / Do not show] the means. |

whiskers, w / -whiskers, -w | [Show / Do not show] the whiskers (lines from the box to the staples). |

staples, s / -staples, -s | [Show / Do not show] the staples (lines drawn at the last data point within the inner fences). |

near / -near | [Show /Do not show] the near outliers (values between the inner and outer fences). |

far / -far | [Show / Do not show] the far outliers (values beyond the outer fences). |

width(arg) (default =“fixed”) | Set the width settings for the boxplots, where arg is one of: “fixed” (uniform width), “n” (proportional to sample size), “rootn” (proportional to the square root of sample size). |

ci(arg) (default= “shade”) | Set the display method for the median confidence intervals, where arg is one of: “none” (do not display), “shade” (shaded intervals), “notch” (notched intervals). |

Examples

graph01.setbpelem -far width(n) ci(notch)

hides the far outliers, sets the box widths proportional to the number of observations, and enables notching of the confidence intervals.
