The boxplot can be created by using boxplot function in base R but the Y−axis labels are generated based on the vector we pass through the function. If we want to remove the axis labels then axes = FALSE argument can be used. For example, if we have a vector x then the boxplot for x without axes labels can be created by using boxplot(x,axes=FALSE).
Consider the below vector x and creating boxplot −
set.seed(777) x<−rnorm(50000,41.5,3.7) boxplot(x)
Creating the boxplot without Y−axis labels −
Let’s have a look at another example −
Removing Y−axis labels −
We can do the same for multiple boxplots if the data is contained in a data frame.
