plot.qlifetable | R Documentation |

Plot method for a data frame of events or time exposed occurring in each Lexis-diagram quarter for a set of ages.
This is a plot method for the objects typically obtained using the function `count_events_quarter`

or whatever of the time_exposed_ functions (e.g., `time_exposed_outs`

).

## S3 method for class 'qlifetable' plot( x, ..., range.ages = NULL, key = "numbers", decimal.digits = 2, color.palette = "grey", alpha.max = 1, alpha.min = 0.4, color.values = "black", big.mark = NULL, size.values = 3, legend.name = NULL, name.labels.age = c("Q1", "Q2", "Q3", "Q4"), name.labels.season = c("Winter", "Spring", "Summer", "Autumn"), show.plot = TRUE )

`x` |
A data frame of quarterly summary statistics. Typically an output of the function |

`...` |
Other arguments passed on to methods. Not currently used. |

`range.ages` |
A vector of integers informing the aggregation of ages for which the graphical representation should be plotted. Default, NULL, the agggregation of all ages is shown. |

`key` |
Type of statistic to be presented in the plot. Either 'numbers' or relative 'percentages'. |

`decimal.digits` |
Integer indicating the number of decimal places to be shown. Default, 2. |

`color.palette` |
Background base color for cells. Default, "grey". |

`alpha.max` |
A number in the interval [0, 1]. Maximum level of transparency to be applied for the background to build the palette. Default, 1. |

`alpha.min` |
A number in the interval [0, 1]. Minimum level of transparency to be applied for the background to build the palette. Default, 0.4. |

`color.values` |
Base color for numbers printed in each cell. Default, "black". |

`big.mark` |
A character string indicating the symbol to be used as thousand separator. Default, NULL. |

`size.values` |
A number indicating the font size to be used for inner-cells values. Default, 3. |

`legend.name` |
Name to be use as name in the legend. Default, NULL. |

`name.labels.age` |
Names to be used for the (y) age axis. Default, c("Q1", "Q2", "Q3", "Q4"). |

`name.labels.season` |
Names to be used for the (x) season axis. Default, c("Winter", "Spring", "Summer", "Autumn"). |

`show.plot` |
A TRUE/FALSE indicating if the plot should be displayed as a side-effect. By default, TRUE. |

Invisibly returns the (ggplot) description of the plot, which is a list with components that contain the plot itself, the data, information about the scales, panels, etc.

ggplot2 is needed to be installed for this function to work.
