Boxplot in Seaborn

A boxplot is used to visualize the distribution and central tendency of a dataset. Here’s how you can create a boxplot with Seaborn:

  1. Import Seaborn: First, ensure you have Seaborn imported into your Python script:
    import seaborn as sns
    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  1. Prepare Your Data: Load or prepare the dataset you want to visualize with the boxplot.
  1. Create the Boxplot: Use the sns.boxplot function to create the boxplot:
    data = [15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60]

    sns.boxplot(data=data, color='skyblue')

    plt.xlabel('X-axis (Data)')
    plt.title('Boxplot Example')

In this example, we create a simple boxplot for a univariate dataset. The boxplot visually represents the median, quartiles, and potential outliers of the data.

  1. Customize Your Plot: Customize your boxplot as needed by adding labels, adjusting colors, and specifying other formatting options.
  1. Show the Plot: Finally, use to display your boxplot.
