Cars example


# ggplot2 examples
#use color brewer as default discrete colors
scale_colour_discrete <- function(...) scale_color_brewer(palette="Set1", ...)
scale_fill_discrete <- function(...) scale_fill_brewer(palette="Set1", ...)

# create factors with value labels
mtcars$gear <- factor(mtcars$gear,levels=c(3,4,5),
mtcars$am <- factor(mtcars$am,levels=c(0,1),
mtcars$cyl <- factor(mtcars$cyl,levels=c(4,6,8),

Kernel density plots for mpg

Grouped by number of gears (indicated by color).

qplot(mpg, data=mtcars, geom="density", fill=gear, alpha=I(.5),
   main="Distribution of Gas Milage", xlab="Miles Per Gallon",

Scatterplot of mpg vs. hp

For each combination of gears and cylinders in each facet, transmission type is represented by shape and color.

qplot(hp, mpg, data=mtcars, shape=am, color=am,
   facets=gear~cyl, size=I(3),
   xlab="Horsepower", ylab="Miles per Gallon")

Regressions of mpg on weight

Separate for each number of cylinders.

ggplot(mtcars, aes(wt, mpg, color = cyl)) +
  geom_point() +
  geom_smooth(method = "lm", formula = y~x) +
  labs(title = "Regression of MPG on Weight", x = "Weight", y = "Miles per Gallon")

Boxplots of mpg by number of gears

Observations (points) are overlayed and jittered.

qplot(gear, mpg, data=mtcars, geom=c("boxplot", "jitter"),
   fill=gear, main="Mileage by Gear Number",
   xlab="", ylab="Miles per Gallon")
