plot.visreg: Visualization of regression functions

View source: R/plot.visreg.R

Description

A function for visualizing regression models quickly and easily. Default plots contain a confidence band, prediction line, and partial residuals. Factors, transformations, conditioning, interactions, and a variety of other options are supported. The plot.visreg function accepts a visreg or visregList object as calculated by visreg and creates the plot.

## S3 method for class 'visreg'
plot(x, overlay=FALSE, print.cond=FALSE,
whitespace=0.2, partial=identical(x$meta$trans, I), band=TRUE,
rug=ifelse(partial, 0, 2), strip.names=is.numeric(x$fit[,x$meta$by]),
legend=TRUE, line.par=NULL, fill.par=NULL, points.par=NULL, gg=FALSE,
...)

Arguments

x

A visreg or visregList object; see visreg.

overlay

When by is specified, by default separate panels are used to display each cross-section. If overlay=TRUE, these cross-sections are overlaid on top of each other in a single plot.

print.cond

If print.cond=TRUE, the explanatory variable values conditioned on in a conditional plot are printed to the console (default: FALSE). If print.cond=TRUE and type="contrast", the conditions will still be printed, but they have no bearing on the plot unless interactions are present.

whitespace

When xvar is a factor, whitespace determines the amount of space in between factors on the x-axis. Default is 0.2, meaning that 20 percent of the horizontal axis is whitespace.

partial

If partial=TRUE (the default), partial residuals are shown on the plot.

band

If band=TRUE (the default), confidence bands are shown on the plot.

rug

By default, partial residuals are plotted. Alternatively, a rug may be plotted along the horizontal axis instead. Setting rug=TRUE turns off partial residuals by default; if one wants both to be plotted, both rug=TRUE and partial=TRUE need to be specified. Two types of rug plots are available. If rug=1 or rug=TRUE, then a basic rug is drawn on the bottom. If rug=2, then separate rugs are drawn on the top for observations with positive residuals and on the bottom for observations with negative residuals. Such plots are particularly useful in logistic regression (see examples).

strip.names

When by=TRUE, strip.names=TRUE adds the name of the by variable to the strip at the top of each panel. Default is FALSE for factors and TRUE for numeric by variables. strip.names can also be a character vector, in which case it replaces the strip names altogether with values chosen by the user.

legend

For overlay plots, (overlay=TRUE), should visreg create a legend? If legend=TRUE (the default), a legend is placed in the top margin.

line.par

List of parameters (see par) to pass to lines(...) when lines are drawn in the plots.

fill.par

List of parameters (see par) to pass to polygon(...) when shaded confidence regions are drawn in the plots.

points.par

List of parameters (see par) to pass to points(...) when partial residuals are drawn in the plots.

gg

By default (gg=FALSE), visreg will use the lattice package to render the plot if multiple panels are required. If gg=TRUE, it will use the ggplot2 package instead, provided that it is installed.

...

Graphical parameters can be passed to the function to customize the plots. If by=TRUE, lattice parameters can be passed, such as layout (see examples below).
