### Quartiles calculation for odd samples

When you have an odd sample, you may ask the question of how to split the sample into two. There are several valid methods to calculate the quartiles. Statskingdom usually uses option-1, while the advanced boxplot maker uses option-3.

**Include the median**- the median appears in both lists.**Exclude the median**- the median doesn't appear in either list.**Average**- the average of the previous methods.

### Exclude outliers

The box and whisker chart is not sensitive to outliers, but one extreme outlier may change the chart scale dramatically.

If you switch on the exclude outliers, it scales the chart nicely but loses the outliers.

The 'advanced boxplot maker' filters out the outliers before generating the chart.

### Boxplot type

If you switch on the 'Exclude outliers', you should choose 'Only Whiskers' or 'Show data'

**Outliers**- the whiskers don't include the outliers, the outliers appear as points.**Suspected Outliers**- the whiskers don't include the outliers, the outliers appear as two types of points, suspected outliers, and outliers.**Only Whiskers**- the whiskers include the outliers.**Show data**- the whiskers don't include the outliers, shoes all the data as points.
