indivplot(x, type = c("errorbar", "bar")[1], top = 10, causelist = NULL,
  which.plot = NULL, xlab = "Causes", ylab = "COD distribution",
  title = "COD distributions for the top causes", horiz = TRUE,
  angle = 60, fill = "lightblue", err_width = 0.4, err_size = 0.6,
  point_size = 2, border = "black", bw = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

object from get.indiv function.

type

An indicator of the type of chart to plot. "errorbar" for line plots of only the error bars on single population; "bar" for bar chart with error bars on single population.

top

The number of top causes to plot. If multiple sub-populations are to be plotted, it will plot the union of the top causes in all sub-populations.

causelist

The list of causes to plot. It could be a numeric vector indicating the position of the causes in the InterVA cause list (see causetext), or a vector of character string of the cause names. The argument supports partial matching of the cause names. e.g., "HIV/AIDS related death" could be abbreviated into "HIV"; "Other and unspecified infect dis" could be abbreviated into "Other and unspecified infect".

which.plot

Specification of which group to plot if there are multiple.

xlab

Labels for the causes.

ylab

Labels for the CSMF values.

title

Title of the plot.

horiz

Logical indicator indicating if the bars are plotted horizontally.

angle

Angle of rotation for the texts on x axis when horiz is set to FALSE

fill

The color to fill the bars when type is set to "bar".

err_width

Size of the error bars.

err_size

Thickness of the error bar lines.

point_size

Size of the points.

border

The color to color the borders of bars when type is set to "bar".

bw

Logical indicator for setting the theme of the plots to be black and white.

...

Not used.
