symbol.freq: Graphic Representation of a Frequency Table

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/symbol.freq.s

Description

This function can be used to represent contingency tables graphically. Frequency counts are represented as the heights of "thermometers" by default; you can also specify symbol='circle' to the function. There is an option to include marginal frequencies, which are plotted on a halved scale so as to not overwhelm the plot. If you do not ask for marginal frequencies to be plotted using marginals=T, symbol.freq will ask you to click the mouse where a reference symbol is to be drawn to assist in reading the scale of the frequencies.

label attributes, if present, are used for x- and y-axis labels. Otherwise, names of calling arguments are used.

Usage

symbol.freq(x, y, symbol = c("thermometer", "circle"),
            marginals = FALSE, orig.scale = FALSE,
            inches = 0.25, width = 0.15, subset, srtx = 0, ...)

Arguments

x

first variable to cross-classify

y

second variable

symbol

specify "thermometer" (the default) or "circle"

marginals

set to TRUE to add marginal frequencies (scaled by half) to the plot

orig.scale

set to TRUE when the first two arguments are numeric variables; this uses their original values for x and y coordinates)

inches

see symbols

width

see thermometers option in symbols

subset

the usual subsetting vector

srtx

rotation angle for x-axis labels

...

other arguments to pass to symbols
