Dummy dataset in boxplot

2 views (last 30 days)
I have a set of data that I am presenting with the boxplot function. I would like to compare to a national average. I know the national average's median, 75th and 25th percentiles, and I would like to plot my data next to a boxplot showing those values for comparison. Is there a way to create a dummy boxplot to do this? Will I have to create an entire fake distribution?

Ok, as usual, asking the question has been the trick.
I just created a dataset with 4 entries of the 25th percentile, 2 medians, and 4 of the 75th percentile. Works like a charm.
