# How do you find the adjacent value?

## How do you find the adjacent value?

Let IQR be the interquartile range. The upper adjacent value (UAV) is the largest observation that is less than or equal to the upper inner fence (UIF), which is the third quartile plus 1.5*IQR.

What is the lower adjacent value in a box plot?

The lower adjacent value is the furthest observation which is within one and a half iqr (interquartile range) of the lower end of the box; and the upper adjacent value is the furthest observation which is within one and a half iqr of the upper end of the box.

Adjacent values and outliers are values not in the bulk part of a distribution. Adjacent values. Let IQR be the interquartile range. The upper adjacent value (UAV) is the largest observation that is less than or equal to the upper inner fence (UIF), which is the third quartile plus 1.5*IQR.

### How do you compare box plots with overlapping medians?

To compare two box plots with overlapping boxes and medians, calculate the Distance Between Medians as a percentage of the Overall Visible Spread. Keep in mind that box plots are about ranges, not the absolute counts of data. Their skewness suggests that the data might not assume a normal distribution.

How do you analyze box plots?

The median (middle quartile) marks the mid-point of the data and is shown by the line that divides the box into two parts. Half the scores are greater than or equal to this value and half are less. The middle “box” represents the middle 50% of scores for the group.
