Grouped bar chart

Description

Create a bar chart of a single categorical variable or a grouped bar chart of two categorical variables.

Usage

groupedBar(resp, ...)

## Default S3 method:
groupedBar(resp, condvar = NULL, percent = TRUE,
  print = TRUE, cond.name = deparse(substitute(condvar)),
  resp.name = deparse(substitute(resp)), ...)

## S3 method for class 'formula'
groupedBar(formula, data = parent.frame(), subset, ...)

Arguments

resp

a factor variable. If resp is numeric, it will be coerced to a factor variable.

...

further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

condvar

a factor variable to condition on. If NULL, then a bar plot of just the resp variable will be created. If condvar is numeric, it will be coerced to a factor variable.

percent

a logical value. Should the y-axis give percent or counts?

print

a logical value. If TRUE, print out the table.

cond.name

Label for variable condvar.

resp.name

Label for variable resp.

formula

a formula of the form x ~ condvar. If x or condvar is (are) not a factor variable, then it (they) will be coerced into one. Formula can also be ~ x for a single factor variable.

data

a data frame that contains the variables in the formula.

subset

an optional vector specifying a subset of observations to be used.

Details

For a single factor variable, a bar plot. If two factor variables are given, then a bar plot of x conditioned by condvar. This command uses R's table command so missing values are automatically removed.

Value

Returns invisibly a table of the variable(s).

Examples



groupedBar(states03$Region)

groupedBar(states03$DeathPenalty, states03$Region, legend.loc = "topleft")

#Using a formula syntax:
groupedBar(~Region, data = states03)
groupedBar(DeathPenalty ~ Region, data = states03, legend.loc = "topleft")
