Each box with whiskers represents all statistic information for one job: the min and max values, the first, the second (median) and the third quartiles. All boxes in this chart have whiskers and outliers. Whiskers draw attention to the max and the min values, and outliers are those values which don’t belong to their category’s range between the min and the max value, they are unique for their category (e.g. only one person in the state who’s got this job get a salary like this).
