e0.joint.plot: Joint Posterior Distribution of Female and Male Life...

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/plot_functions.R

Description

The functions plot the joint posterior distribution of female and male life expectancy, modeled and predicted using the joint model described in Lalic (2011) and Raftery, Lalic & Gerland (2014). This can be done for one country (e0.joint.plot) or for all countries (e0.joint.plot.all).

e0.joint.plot(e0.pred, country, pi = 95, years, nr.points = 500, 
    obs.pch = 17, obs.cex=1, xlim = NULL, 
    ylim = NULL, xlab = "Female life expectancy", ylab = "Male life expectancy", 
    main = NULL, col = NULL, show.legend = TRUE, add = FALSE, ...)
    
e0.joint.plot.all(e0.pred, output.dir = file.path(getwd(), "e0joint"),
    output.type = "png", verbose = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

e0.pred

Object of class bayesLife.prediction containing female projections.

country

Name or numerical code of a country.

pi

Probability interval. It can be a single number or an array.

years

Array of future years for which to plot the distribution.

nr.points

Number of points shown in the plot for each year.

obs.pch, obs.cex

Graphical parameters used for displaying observed data or data without variation.

xlim, ylim, xlab, ylab, main

Graphical parameters passed to the plot function.

col

Array of colors, one for each year.

show.legend

Logical controlling whether the legend should be drawn.

add

Logical controlling whether the distribution should be plotted into a new graphic device (FALSE) or into an existing device (TRUE).

output.dir

Directory into which resulting graphs are stored.

output.type

Type of the resulting files. It can be “png”, “pdf”, “jpeg”, “bmp”, “tiff”, or “postscript”.

verbose

Logical switching log messages on and off.

...

Additional graphical parameters passed to the lines function drawing ellipses. In addition, for e0.joint.plot.all, ... contains any of the arguments of e0.joint.plot.
