How many steps does it take to see a kangaroo? I started wondering this soon after moving to the center of the Australian Outback. So, with the assistance of my Fitbit, I started recording the number of steps I took after walking out the front door until I saw a kangaroo.

Steps | |
---|---|

0 | 3082 |

1 | 2024 |

2 | 3333 |

3 | 1544 |

4 | 1861 |

5 | 1590 |

6 | 1041 |

7 | 2351 |

8 | 1721 |

9 | 1379 |

It turns that out it took an average of 1992 steps, with a standard deviation of 734. The minimum was 1041 steps and the maximum was 3333.

```
# Now let's plot it using seaborn
# Make it large
fig, ax = plt.subplots(figsize=(10,6))
# Set some style preferences
sns.set(style="ticks", palette="deep", color_codes=True, font_scale=1.5)
# Create the boxplot
ax = sns.boxplot(x="Steps", data=df,
whis=np.inf, color="c")
# Add in points to show each observation
sns.stripplot(x="Steps", data=df,
size=10, color=".3", linewidth=0)
ax.set_xticks(ax.get_xticks())
sns.despine(trim=True)
plt.title('How many steps does it take to see a kangaroo?', size = 16)
```

```
Text(0.5,1,'How many steps does it take to see a kangaroo?')
