Usage of statistical tools is important in reporting valid and unbiased findings of a research. Therefore, this paper aims to discuss the statistical tools commonly used among researchers in the swarm intelligence field. Among the tools discuss is the boxplot. Boxplot is a common data representation method chosen in the field. Nonparametric statistical test for pairwise comparison, namely, Wilcoxon signed rank test, and a test for multiple comparison, namely, Friedman test are also reviewed.
