# databricks.koalas.Series.plot.box¶

plot.box(**kwds)

Make a box plot of the Series columns.

Parameters
**kwdsoptional

Additional keyword arguments are documented in Koalas.Series.plot().

precision: scalar, default = 0.01

This argument is used by Koalas to compute approximate statistics for building a boxplot. Use smaller values to get more precise statistics (matplotlib-only).

Returns
plotly.graph_objs.Figure

Return an custom object when backend!=plotly. Return an ndarray when subplots=True (matplotlib-only).

Notes

There are behavior differences between Koalas and pandas.

• Koalas computes approximate statistics - expect differences between pandas and Koalas boxplots, especially regarding 1st and 3rd quartiles.

• The whis argument is only supported as a single number.

• Koalas doesn’t support the following argument(s) (matplotlib-only).

• bootstrap argument is not supported

• autorange argument is not supported

Examples

Draw a box plot from a DataFrame with four columns of randomly generated data.

For Series:

>>> data = np.random.randn(25, 4)
>>> df = ks.DataFrame(data, columns=list('ABCD'))
>>> df['A'].plot.box()


This is an unsupported function for DataFrame type
