Hi all, I am trying to get the boxplot for Time (HH:MM:SS) and day name data but unable to get the required plot. In detail, I would like to get the Boxplot in terms of days, (Monday to Sunday). I have attached the sample data and any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Hi Cris thanks for your response. I have managed to get box plot using command "boxplot(x,y)" for similar set of data where column A data (please refer to the figure) were the same (x -data) but column B data were numbers. For that I have got the plot (attached here). But now, I am not able to get the boxplot for the time (HH:MM:SS) data. I can easily do the box plot if column B contains numbers or decimals. It is also demonstrated for Matlab 'carsmall" data set as an example. So any help in getting the boxplot for time data (HH:MM:SS) would be highly appreciated.

Yes, with numeric data, you can calculate medians and standard deviations. It looks like your data is a character array, meaning it is text. See Jonas' suggestion below.

i suggest to convert you time (Hour : Minute : Seconds) to seconds using
[~, ~, ~, H, MN, S]=datevec('14:35:22','HH:MM:SS');
MN=MN+60*H;
S=S+MN*60;
then doing you boxplot thing and then converting your boxplot y labels back to a timestring

or the other way around: if you have specific times you want to see, calculates them as seconds, set the values as yticks and then set the ylabels to the times you wanted

Hi Jonas, thanks for your help. I am going to accept the answer.
