DataFrameGroupBy.boxplot(grouped, subplots=True, column=None, fontsize=None, rot=0, grid=True, ax=None, figsize=None, layout=None, **kwds)[source]

Make box plots from DataFrameGroupBy data.


grouped : Grouped DataFrame

subplots :

  • False - no subplots will be used
  • True - create a subplot for each group

column : column name or list of names, or vector

Can be any valid input to groupby

fontsize : int or string

rot : label rotation angle

grid : Setting this to True will show the grid

ax : Matplotlib axis object, default None

figsize : A tuple (width, height) in inches

layout : tuple (optional)

(rows, columns) for the layout of the plot

kwds : other plotting keyword arguments to be passed to matplotlib boxplot



dict of key/value = group key/DataFrame.boxplot return value

or DataFrame.boxplot return value in case subplots=figures=False
