Re: boxplots

As a follow up to this, does Gnumeric use quartiles or hinges? (See Tukeys EDA book for
the definition -- this was the original boxplot construction rule). About 20 years ago the
graphical and printer-plot versions of boxplots in Minitab used different rules --
quartiles for the graphical boxplots and hinges for the printer-plot version, giving very
different appearance to some student scripts. This caused us a lot of grief with students
whose scripts were marked "wrong".

I can probably find a short description I wrote somewhere if there is interest.
