Arrange the scores in lowest to highest order.

* 80 84 86 87 90 91 92 94 100

## Identifying outliers with the 1.5xIQR rule

Google ClassroomFacebookTwitter

An outlier is a data point that lies outside the overall pattern in a distribution.

The distribution below shows the scores on a driver's test for

19 19 19

applicants. How many outliers do you see?

0 0 5 5 10 10 15 15 20 20 25 25 Scores

Some people may say there are

5 5 5

outliers, but someone else might disagree and say there are

3 3 3 or 4 4 4

outliers. Statisticians have developed many ways to identify what should and shouldn't be called an outlier.

A commonly used rule says that a data point is an outlier if it is more than

1.5\cdot \text{IQR} 1.5⋅IQR

1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

above the third quartile or below the first quartile. Said differently, low outliers are below

\text{Q}_1-1.5\cdot\text{IQR}

Q 1 −1.5⋅IQR

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 1, end subscript, minus, 1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

and high outliers are above

\text{Q}_3+1.5\cdot\text{IQR}

Q 3 +1.5⋅IQR

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 3, end subscript, plus, 1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

.

Let's try it out on the distribution from above.

## Step 1) Find the median, quartiles, and interquartile range

Here are the 19 19 19 scores listed out. 5 5 5 , 7 7 7 , 10 10 10 , 15 15 15 , 19 19 19 , 21 21 21 , 21 21 21 , 22 22 22 , 22 22 22 , 23 23 23 , 23 23 23 , 23 23 23 , 23 23 23 , 23 23 23 , 24 24 24 , 24 24 24 , 24 24 24 , 24 24 24 , 25 25 25

**What is the median?**

\text{median}= median=

start text, m, e, d, i, a, n, end text, equals

**What is the first quartile?**

\text{Q}_1= Q 1 =

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 1, end subscript, equals

**What is the third quartile?**

\text{Q}_3= Q 3 =

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 3, end subscript, equals

**What is the interquartile range?**

\text{IQR}= IQR=

start text, I, Q, R, end text, equals

Step 2) Calculate1.5\cdot\text{IQR} 1.5⋅IQR

1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

below the first quartile and check for low outliers.

CalculatePROBLEM A

\text{Q}_1-1.5\cdot\text{IQR}

Q 1 −1.5⋅IQR

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 1, end subscript, minus, 1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

\text{Q}_1-1.5\cdot\text{IQR}=

Q 1 −1.5⋅IQR=

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 1, end subscript, minus, 1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text, equals

## Bonus learning: Showing outliers in box and whisker plots

Box and whisker plots will often show outliers as dots that are separate from the rest of the plot.

Here's a box and whisker plot of the distribution from above that does not show outliers.

Scores 0 0 5 5 10 10 15 15 20 20 25 25

Here's a box and whisker plot of the same distribution that does show outliers.

Scores 0 0 5 5 10 10 15 15 20 20 25 25

Notice how the outliers are shown as dots, and the whisker had to change. The whisker extends to the farthest point in the data set that wasn't an outlier, which was

15 15 15 .

Here's the original data set again for comparison.
