Arguments

x

a data frame or table, or a formula of which the first term is a data frame or table. Otherwise coerced with as.data.frame.

data

an optional data source in which groups and subset may be be evaluated.

groups

term, to be evaluated in data, that is used as a grouping variable.

reorder

whether to reorder factor variables by frequency.

subset

data subset expression, evaluated in data.

plot.points, ref, cut

passed to panel.densityplot.

origin, type

passed to panel.dotplot.

xlab, ylab, as.table, subscripts

see xyplot.

default.scales, layout, lattice.options

see xyplot.

...

passed to panel.densityplot and/or panel.dotplot.

Details

In the case of mixed numeric and categorical variables, the trellis objects from dotplot() and densityplot() are merged.

Value

a trellis object.

enviro <- environmental
## make an ordered factor (so it will not be reordered)
enviro$smell <- cut(enviro$ozone, breaks = c(0, 30, 50, Inf),
    labels = c("ok", "hmmm", "yuck"), ordered = TRUE)
marginal.plot(enviro)

## using groups
enviro$is.windy <- factor(enviro$wind > 10,
    levels = c(TRUE, FALSE), labels = c("windy", "calm"))
marginal.plot(enviro[,1:5], data = enviro, groups = is.windy,
    auto.key = list(lines = TRUE))

## support for tables
marginal.plot(Titanic)
## table with groups
marginal.plot(~ Titanic, data = Titanic, groups = Survived,
    type = "b", auto.key = list(title = "Survived?"))
