Box Plots and Mosaic Plots |

In the dialog, select at least one **Y** variable.
You can select one or more **X**
variables to compare distributions.
If you do not select **X** variables, you get one plot
containing one schematic diagram for each **Y** variable.
If you select **X** variables,
you get one plot for each **Y** variable,
and each plot contains one schematic diagram
for each combination of **X** values.
For example, Figure 33.3 shows the box plot
created using the **BASEBALL** data set with **NO_HITS** as
the **Y** variable and **LEAGUE** as the **X** variable.
You can select one or more **Group**
variables if you have grouped data.
This creates a separate box or mosaic plot for each group.
For example, Figure 33.4 shows the box plots
created using the **BASEBALL** data set with **NO_HITS** as
the **Y** variable and **LEAGUE** as the **Group** variable.
You can select a **Label** variable
to label extreme values in box plots.
If you select a **Freq** variable, each observation
is assumed to represent *n* observations, where
*n* is the value of the **Freq** variable.
You can identify extreme values in the box plot
and display the *mean* or average value.
You can also control the marker size of extreme values and the
information shown in the box plot axes.
