I have encountered some box and whisker plots in the work that I do, but not many. It is definitely an effective tool to utilize on a dashboard, but I haven’t engaged with it as frequently compared to other types of graphs. I think this is because it’s not the most understandable graph compared to other types of graphs. You have to understand what you are looking for in a box and whisker plot, and that isn’t as easily accessible. Comparing both histograms and box and whisker plots, histograms are much more comprehendible to the person with little to no data analysis skills.
