What is an outlier?

Bookmark this question

Outlier is a general term for an observation that is far away from most other data points. Outliers are often identified subjectively, but common heuristics include points beyond 1.5 interquartile ranges from the first and third quartiles, or those a certain number of standard deviations beyond the mean. 

The red dot in the above chart represents an outlier.
