Automated Stress Identifier

Stress Identifier uses the interquartile range to filter out outliers. It is less sensitive to extreme values since it makes no distributional assumptions and it does not depend on a mean or standard deviation.

How to use it ?

StrayDot generates an automatic report with outliers based on our Stress Identifier.
