Boxplot for both x and y axis with different box widths.

38 views (last 30 days)
How can we make a boxplot like the one below for both x and y data (the box widths of each group that are x-data related are different). I tried boxplot(X,Y, group) but it did not work.

The boxplot command creates a group of lines, so if you wanted to adjust the box widths you would need to manually adjust the XData properties on each line to move them to the desired locations.
The better alternative is to use the new boxchart command. The object created by the the boxchart command has a BoxWidth property, but I suspect you won't need it, because even when you specify x values, the boxes created by the boxchart command have uniform widths.
boxchart(randn(1000,1), 'BoxWidth', 0.3);
or
boxchart(randi(10,1000,1),randn(1000,1));

Thank you very much! Cool, the box widths now are controlled by some numbers. I tried some means but did not make it. The locations of x-data are also controlled by the real values not by even distance. Thanks a lot! This is really cool!!
