Grouped Box Plot

How to Build a Grouped Box Plot

A Grouped Box Plot can be built to visualize numerical field distributions across a series of categories. A grouped box plot can be built when combining one numerical field with one categorical field.
Dimension 1
Dimension 2
1x Categorical, or 1x Categorical Multiple (<=15 categories))
1x Numerical (integer), or 1x Numerical (float)

Using Grouped Box Plot in the Cohort Browser

In grouped box plot, each category from the categorical dimension is draw along the x axis as a single box plot, while the numerical dimension is rendered as the y axis.
Similar to Box Plots, when the numerical dimension used have non-numeric values, these values would be counted and displayed separately from the plot.

Grouped Box Plot in Cohort Compare

In compare mode, box plots are further divided by each cohort under each category.

Note: that the box plot does NOT account for or display outliers. All non-null values are used for the display.

Notes on Data Preparation

Ingestion Data Types supported as categorical dimension:
    String Categorical
    String Categorical Multi-Select
    String Categorical Sparse
    Integer Categorical
    Integer Categorical Multi-Select
Ingestion Data Types supported as numerical dimension:
    Integer
    Integer Sparse
    Float
    Float Sparse
Note: while sparse serial types are supported as categorical dimension, the non-encoded values are not supported by this chart type. Special values in the numerical dimension however will be counted and shown separately as a list view.
