)[source]¶ Plot functional boxplot.
A functional boxplot is the analog of a boxplot for functional data. Functional data is any type of data that varies over a continuum, i.e. curves, probability distributions, seasonal data, etc.
The data is first ordered, the order statistic used here is banddepth. Plotted are then the median curve, the envelope of the 50% central region, the maximum nonoutlying envelope and the outlier curves.
 Parameters:¶
 datasequence
of
ndarrays
or 2Dndarray
The vectors of functions to create a functional boxplot from. If a sequence of 1D arrays, these should all be the same size. The first axis is the function index, the second axis the one along which the function is defined. So
data[0, :]
is the first functional curve. xdata
ndarray
,optional
The independent variable for the data. If not given, it is assumed to be an array of integers 0..N1 with N the length of the vectors in data.
 labelssequence
of
scalar orstr
,optional
The labels or identifiers of the curves in data. If given, outliers are labeled in the plot.
 depth
ndarray
,optional
A 1D array of band depths for data, or equivalent order statistic. If not given, it will be calculated through banddepth.
 method{‘MBD’, ‘BD2’},
optional
The method to use to calculate the band depth. Default is ‘MBD’.
 wfactor
float
,optional
Factor by which the central 50% region is multiplied to find the outer region (analog of “whiskers” of a classical boxplot).
 ax
AxesSubplot
,optional
If given, this subplot is used to plot in instead of a new figure being created.
 plot_opts
dict
,optional
A dictionary with plotting options. Any of the following can be provided, if not present in plot_opts the defaults will be used:
 'cmap_outliers', a Matplotlib LinearSegmentedColormap instance.  'c_inner', valid MPL color. Color of the central 50% region  'c_outer', valid MPL color. Color of the nonoutlying region  'c_median', valid MPL color. Color of the median.  'lw_outliers', scalar. Linewidth for drawing outlier curves.  'lw_median', scalar. Linewidth for drawing the median curve.  'draw_nonout', bool. If True, also draw nonoutlying curves.
 datasequence
 Returns:¶
 fig
Figure
If ax is None, the created figure. Otherwise the figure to which ax is connected.
 depth
ndarray
A 1D array containing the calculated band depths of the curves.
 ix_depth
ndarray
A 1D array of indices needed to order curves (or depth) from most to least central curve.
 ix_outliers
ndarray
A 1D array of indices of outlying curves in data.

Notes
The median curve is the curve with the highest band depth.
Outliers are defined as curves that fall outside the band created by multiplying the central region by wfactor. Note that the range over which they fall outside this band does not matter, a single data point outside the band is enough. If the data is noisy, smoothing may therefore be required.
The nonoutlying region is defined as the band made up of all the nonoutlying curves.

Examples
Load the El Nino dataset. Consists of 60 years worth of Pacific Ocean sea surface temperature data.
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> import statsmodels.api as sm >>> data = sm.datasets.elnino.load()
Create a functional boxplot. We see that the years 198283 and 199798 are outliers; these are the years where El Nino (a climate pattern characterized by warming up of the sea surface and higher air pressures) occurred with unusual intensity.
>>> fig = plt.figure() >>> ax = fig.add_subplot(111) >>> res = sm.graphics.fboxplot(data.raw_data[:, 1:], wfactor=2.58, ... labels=data.raw_data[:, 0].astype(int), ... ax=ax)
>>> ax.set_xlabel("Month of the year") >>> ax.set_ylabel("Sea surface temperature (C)") >>> ax.set_xticks(np.arange(13, step=3)  1) >>> ax.set_xticklabels(["", "Mar", "Jun", "Sep", "Dec"]) >>> ax.set_xlim([0.2, 11.2])
>>> plt.show()
