Distance based on side by side Boxplots for two levels

Description

Assuming there are only two groups, the first quartile, median and third quartile is calculated for each group of data X. The absolute difference between these statistics between the two groups are then calculated. Same is done for data PX. Finally an euclidean distance is calculated between the absolute differences of X and PX.
