Box plot of income, Applied Statistics

The box plot displays the diversity of data for the income; the data ranges from 20 being the minimum value and 1110 being the maximum value. The box plot is positively skewed at 4.27 as the whisker at the top of the box is longer than the whisker at the bottom of the box, thus showing that there are more values at the top end of the box. The lower quartile is basically the 25th percentile which is 100; the median is the 50th percentile which is 120 and the upper quartile is 75th percentile which is 160.
