Changepoint models enjoy a wide appeal in a variety of disciplines to model the heterogeneity of ordered data. Graphical influence diagnostics to characterize the influence of single observations on changepoint models are, however, lacking. We address this gap by developing a framework for investigating instabilities in changepoint segmentations and assessing the influence of single observations on various outputs of a changepoint analysis. We construct graphical diagnostic plots that allow practitioners to assess whether instabilities occur; how and where they occur; and to detect influential individual observations triggering instability. We analyze well-log data to illustrate how such influence diagnostic plots can be used in practice to reveal features of the data that may otherwise remain hidden.
