Description

A function used to visualize how two variables interact to affect the response in regression models.

Usage

2
visreg2d(fit, xvar, yvar, type=c("conditional", "contrast"), trans=I,
scale=c("linear", "response"), nn=99, cond=list(), plot=TRUE, ...)

Arguments

fit

The fitted model object you wish to visualize. Any object with 'predict' and 'model.frame' methods are supported, including lm, glm, gam, rlm, coxph, and many more.

xvar

Character string specifying the variable to be put on the x-axis of your plot. Both continuous variables and factors are supported.

yvar

Character string specifying the variable to be put on the y-axis of your plot. Both continuous variables and factors are supported.

type

The type of plot to be produced. The following options are supported:

  • If 'conditional' is selected, the plot returned shows the value of the variable on the x-axis and the change in response on the y-axis, holding all other variables constant (by default, median for numeric variables and most common category for factors).

  • If 'contrast' is selected, the plot returned shows the effect on the expected value of the response by moving the x variable away from a reference point on the x-axis (for numeric variables, this is taken to be the mean).

For more details, see references.

trans

(Optional) A function specifying a transformation for the vertical axis.

scale

By default, the model is plotted on the scale of the linear predictor. If scale='response' for a glm, the inverse link function will be applied so that the model is plotted on the scale of the original response.

nn

Resolution of the three dimensional plot. Higher values will results in a smoother looking plot.

cond

Named list specifying conditional values of other explanatory variables. By default, conditional plots in visreg are constructed by filling in other explanatory variables with the median (for numeric variables) or most common category (for factors), but this can be overridden by specifying their values using cond (see examples).

plot

Send the calculations to plot.visreg2d, producing a plot? Default is TRUE.

...

Graphical parameters (e.g., ylab) can be passed to the function to customize the plots.

Value

A visreg2d object consisting of:

x

Values of xvar to be plotted

y

Values of yvar to be plotted

z

Values of outcome to be plotted

meta

Meta-information needed to construct plots, such as the name of the x and y variables.
