If I create a barplot using Seaborn and specify the geometric mean or the median as the estimator, does Seaborn know to use the appropriate standard error formula to create error bars?


1 Answer 1


This information is in the documentation of Seaborn.

They show a bootstrap confidence interval, computed by resampling units (rows in the 2d array input form). By default, in seaborn version 0.8.1 it uses 95% of confidence interval, which is equivalent to a standard error. This value is a parameter that can be changed.
