Box and Whisker (Brad)

This visual provides a summarized view of an entire data set without excluding outliers, clusters, etc. behind means or medians but instead it illuminates them.

In addition to seeing the data set’s symmetry and skewness, we can see a number of categories next to each other on a similar graph to easily compare these characteristics.

A disadvantage of emphasizing the tails of the data distribution, the most uncertain data points, is that the we may lose sight of what is going on in the details of the data. This could be combatted by adding a histogram to analyse the distribution of your numerical data within the same dashboards. Both the Axis and Value fields are required.
