A stem-and-leaf diagram, also called a stem-and-leaf plot, is a diagram that quickly summarizes data while maintaining the individual data points. In such a diagram, the “stem” is a column of the unique elements of data after removing the last digit. The final digits (“leaves”) of each column are then placed in a row next to the appropriate column and sorted in numerical order. This diagram was invented by John Tukey. Usually, the “stem” values are listed down, and the “leaf” values go right (or left) from the stem values. The “stem” is used to group the scores and each “leaf” shows the individual scores within each group. Look at the following images.

This kind of plot or diagram is typically used to track the scores of a number of groups, such as those produced by sports teams or in a classroom setting, a stem and leaf plot clearly lists the scores of each group or individual in descending order. The stem and leaf diagram is formed by splitting the numbers into two parts – in this case, tens and units. The tens form the ‘stem’ and the units form the ‘leaves’. This information is given to us in the Key. It is usual for the numbers to be ordered.

This way the “stem” groups the scores and each “leaf” indicates a score within that group. You can use these stem and leaf diagrams as the reference and guidance on how to make your own diagram. All images are free so just click on it and save!
