Interquartile range

returns the interquartile range of the values in `r`

= iqr(`x`

)`x`

.

If

`x`

is a vector, then`r`

is the difference between the 75th and the 25th percentiles of the data contained in`x`

.If

`x`

is a matrix, then`r`

is a row vector containing the difference between the 75th and the 25th percentiles of the sample data in each column of`x`

.If

`x`

is a multidimensional array, then`iqr`

operates along the first nonsingleton dimension of`x`

. The size of this dimension becomes 1 while the sizes of all other dimensions remain the same.
