What is a boxplot? A boxplot is a method of graphical representation of data minimum, quartiles, and maximum values. The lower side of rectangle is the first quartile (such a value that 25% of data is less than this value), the top side of rectangle is the third quartile (such a value that 75% of values is less than this value). Whiskers on a plot demonstates minimum and maximum. For instance, let's build a boxplot for the 'empinch' column (represents total household employment income).

These types are the most popular, but you will face the remaining ones while studying visualization libraries.
