Qarmalah, Najla M., Einbeck, Jochen & Coolen, Frank P.A. (2018). k-Boxplots for mixture data. Statistical Papers 59(2): 513-528.

Author(s) from Durham


This article introduces a new graphical tool to summarize data which possess a mixture structure. Computation of the required summary statistics makes use of posterior probabilities of class membership which can be obtained from a fitted mixture model. Real and simulated data are used to highlight the usefulness of this tool for the visualization of mixture data in comparison to the traditional boxplot.
