I have seen both box-and-whisker plots and frequency histograms used for reporting clinical and academic research data. Depending on the shape of the data, researchers I’ve known often prefer box-and-whisker plots for visualizing and comparing different sets of data. Though, these can be a headache for people to create and edit for their presentations. An alternate way to show a very small distribution is a stemplot, although I’ve never actually seen these used.
