My school doesn't have Moore and McCabe, but I did look in Tanis and Hogg and there wasn't any mention of fences or adjacent values (atleast when it is describing box plots).  It does mention quartiles and medians, but nothing else.  Any other ideas?  I've looked through about 30 stats books so far.

The classic reference to Tukey is already out but you can easily get a cite in any modern intro stats book, e.g., Moore and McCabe, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics, or Tanis and Hogg, Probability and Statistical Inference.

Can someone refer me to a well-known statistics book that defines the terms such as "inner fence" and "adjacent value", which Stata uses in its box plots?  I've found some online sources, but my advisor wants something more "real" to cite in my thesis.
thanks,
