Create a stem-and-leaf plot

Graph > Stem-and-Leaf

Complete the following steps to specify the data for your graph.

  1. In Graph variables, enter one or more numeric or date/time columns that you want to graph. Minitab displays a separate plot for each column.
  2. (Optional) In By variable, enter a column of categorical data (numeric or date/time) that defines groups. Minitab displays a separate plot for each value in the By variable.
  3. (Optional) Select Trim outliers to remove outliers from the rest of the plot. Outlier values are displayed on lines labeled LO and HI. This option does not work if you enter a By variable.
  4. (Optional) In Increment, enter a number to control vertical scaling by setting the increment between display lines (the difference between the smallest possible values on adjacent lines).

In this worksheet, Percent Fat is the graph variable. The plot shows the distribution of percent fat.
