Area Plot

Description

Produce a stacked area plot, or add polygons to an existing plot.

Usage

areaplot(x, ...)

## Default S3 method:
areaplot(x, y = NULL, prop = FALSE, add = FALSE,
  xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL, col = NULL, legend = FALSE,
  args.legend = NULL, ...)

## S3 method for class 'formula'
areaplot(formula, data, subset, na.action = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

a numeric vector of x values, or if y=NULL a numeric vector of y values. Can also be a 1-dimensional table (x values in names, y values in array), matrix or 2-dimensional table (x values in row names and y values in columns), a data frame (x values in first column and y values in subsequent columns), or a time-series object of class ts/mts.

...

further arguments passed to areaplot.default, matplot, and polygon.

y

a numeric vector of y values, or a matrix containing y values in columns.

prop

whether data should be plotted as proportions, so stacked areas equal 1.

add

whether polygons should be added to an existing plot.

xlab

a label for x axis.

ylab

a label for y axis.

col

fill color of polygon(s). The default is a vector of gray colors.

legend

a logical indicating whether a legend should be added, or a vector of strings for the legend. This only applies when more than one series is plotted.

args.legend

a list of additional arguments to pass to the legend function.

formula

a formula, such as y~x or cbind(y1,y2)~x, specifying x and y values. A dot on the left-hand side, .~x, means all variables except the one specified on the right-hand side.

data

a data frame (or list) from which the variables in formula should be taken.

subset

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

na.action

a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain NA values. The default is to ignore missing values in the given variables.

Value

Matrix of cumulative sums that was used for plotting.

See Also

polygon is the underlying function used to draw polygons.

confplot plots confidence bands as a filled area.

areaplot-package gives an overview of the package.

Examples

areaplot(rpois(10,40))
areaplot(rnorm(10))

# formula
areaplot(Armed.Forces~Year, data=longley)
areaplot(cbind(Armed.Forces,Unemployed)~Year, data=longley)
areaplot(.~Year, data=longley)

# add=TRUE
plot(1940:1970, 500*runif(31), ylim=c(0,500))
areaplot(Armed.Forces~Year, data=longley, add=TRUE)

# data frame
mydata <- longley[c("Year","GNP")]
areaplot(mydata)

# matrix
areaplot(WorldPhones)
areaplot(WorldPhones, prop=TRUE)

# table
require(MASS)
areaplot(table(Aids2$age))
areaplot(table(Aids2$age, Aids2$sex))

# ts/mts
areaplot(austres)
areaplot(Seatbelts[,c("drivers","front","rear")],
         ylab="Killed or seriously injured")
abline(v=1983+1/12, lty=3)

# legend
require(MASS)
areaplot(table(Aids2$age, Aids2$sex), legend=TRUE)
areaplot(WorldPhones, legend=TRUE, args.legend=list(x="topleft"))
