• Basic Graphing in Gnumeric.

Here are some instructions to help you recreate the graphs you see below.

• Boxplot

1. Highlight a column of data you wish to turn

into a boxplot.

• 2. Click the Insert Charts icon.

• 3. Select the appropriate type of graph from

• 4. This is the properties editor for your chart.

You can use it to add and customize sections

of your chart. It is broken down into various

sections.

The first thing we will do is add the second set

of data. Click on Box-Plot 1, then click the add

button, and select Add Series to Box-Plot 1.

• 5. Your screen should look similar to the one

at right. You can click the boxes to select

where the information its asking for is found.

(Name): is in the first row of the second

column.

Values: are located in the second column.

• 6. We will now add labels and a title.

Click on X-Axis 1, then add, select Label to X-

Axis 1. In the text field, type the name of your

label and then press enter.

Click on Chart 1, then add, select Title to Chart

and then press enter.

• 7. Now click insert and drag out the size of

your chart in Gnumeric. Release and youre

• Histogram

1. Creating a histogram starts the same way

as a boxplot. Highlight a column of data, click

insert chart, select histogram and then click

forward.

• 2. The first thing you will have to do is setup

Series 1. For (Name): and Values: proceed as

you did above with the boxplot. We will

ignore (Limits): for now.

• 3. We will now add the second set of data,

but we will want it to use a different y-axis;

so we must add that first. Click Chart 1, Click

Since this axis is closer to our first set of data

we can change the college data to use this

axis. Click on Histogram 1, Axes, then change

Y axis: to

Y-Axis2.

• 4. To add the Bachelors Degree data we

must add a separate histogram (you cannot

have a single histogram with two series).

navigate to and click on Histogram.

• 5. Select the Bachelors Degree data much

like in step 2. Again ignore the (Limits): field.

We want this histogram to use the closer Y-

Axis, so as before click on Histogram2, Axes

and Change Y-Axis: to Y-Axis1.

• 6. Next you will add the drop lines. Click on

College, Click Add, Select Drop lines to

College. Repeat for Bachelors.

• 7. Complete the histogram by adding a title,

label to the x-axis and inserting the chart on
