ggplot2.stripchart is an easy to use function (from easyGgplot2 package), to produce a stripchart using ggplot2 plotting system and R software. Stripcharts are also known as one dimensional scatter plots (or dot plots). These plots are suitable compared to box plots when sample sizes are small.

The aim of this tutorial is to show you step by step, how to plot and customize a stripchart using ggplot2.stripchart function.

At the end of this tutorial you will be able to draw, with few R code, the following plots :

ggplot2.stripchart function is described in detail at the end of this document.

easyGgplot2 R package can be installed as follow :

install.packages("devtools")library(devtools)install_github("easyGgplot2", "kassambara")

Load the package using this R code :

library(easyGgplot2)

The data must be a numeric vector or a data.frame (columns are variables and rows are observations).

ToothGrowth data is used in the following examples.

# create a numeric vectornumVector<-rnorm(100)head(numVector)
## [1] -0.7958 0.1623 2.1102 0.5006 0.2491 -1.5663
# data.framedf <- ToothGrowthhead(df)
## len supp dose## 1 4.2 VC 0.5## 2 11.5 VC 0.5## 3 7.3 VC 0.5## 4 5.8 VC 0.5## 5 6.4 VC 0.5## 6 10.0 VC 0.5

ToothGrowth describes the effect of Vitamin C on Tooth growth in Guinea pigs. The response is the length (len) of teeth in each of 10 guinea pigs at each of three dose levels of Vitamin C (0.5, 1, and 2 mg) with each of two delivery methods (orange juice or ascorbic acid).

The data is a data frame with 60 observations on 3 variables.* [,1] len numeric Tooth length.* [,2] supp factor Supplement type (VC or OJ).* [,3] dose numeric Dose in milligrams.

notch: If TRUE, make a notched box plot. The notch displays a confidence interval around the median which is normally based on the median +/- 1.57 x IQR/sqrt of n. Notches are used to compare groups; if the notches of two boxes do not overlap, this is strong evidence that the medians differ.

To change the size of dots, use the argument ‘size’ (e.g : size = 4)

Each dot represents one observation and the mean point corresponds to the mean value of the observations in a given group.

Different point shapes and line types can be used in the plot. By default, ggplot2 uses solid line type and circle shape.

  • The different point shapes in R are described here.
  • The available line types are shown here.

Change stripchart color according to the group

Colors can be specified as a hexadecimal RGB triplet, such as "#FFCC00" or by names (e.g : "red" ). You can also use other color scales, such as ones taken from the RColorBrewer package. The different color systems available in R have been described in detail here.

To change stripchart color according to the group, you have to specify the name of the data column containing the groups using the argument groupName. Use the argument groupColors, to specify colors by hexadecimal code or by name. In this case, the length of groupColors should be the same as the number of the groups. Use the argument brewerPalette, to specify colors using RColorBrewerpalette.

# Color the stripchart accoording to the groupName "dose"ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose')# Change group colors using hexadecimal colorsggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose', groupColors=c('#999999','#E69F00','#56B4E9'))# Change group colors using brewer palette: "Paired"ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose',brewerPalette="Paired")

Color can also be changed by using names as follow :

# Change group colors using color namesggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose', groupColors=c('aquamarine3','chartreuse1','goldenrod1'))

Legend

Legend position

# Change the legend position to "top" # (possible values: "left","top", "right", "bottom")ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose', legendPosition="top")# legendPosition can be also a numeric vector c(x, y)ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose', legendPosition=c(0.8,0.2))

ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (27)ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (28)

It is also possible to position the legend inside the plotting area. You have to indicate the x, y coordinates of legend box. x and y values must be between 0 and 1. c(0,0) corresponds to “bottom left” and c(1,1) corresponds to “top right” position.

Legend background color, title and text font styles

# Change legend background color, title and text font stylesggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='dose', #legendTitleFont=c(size, style, color) legendTitle="Dose (mg)", legendTitleFont=c(10, "bold", "blue"), #legendTextFont=c(size, style, color) legendTextFont=c(10, "bold.italic", "red"), #legendBackground: c(fill, lineSize, lineType, lineColor) legendBackground=c("lightblue", 0.5, "solid", "darkblue" ) )

The facet approach splits a plot into a matrix of panels. Each panel shows a different subset of the data.

Facet with one variable

#Facet according to the supp variableggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames="supp") # Change the direction. possible values are "vertical", "horizontal".# default is vertical.ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames="supp", facetingDirection="horizontal") 

ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (42)ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (43)

Facet with two variables

# Facet by two variables: dose and supp.# Rows are dose and columns are suppggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames=c("dose","supp"))# Facet by two variables: reverse the order of the 2 variables# Rows are supp and columns are doseggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames=c("supp", "dose"))

ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (44)ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (45)

Facet scales

By default, all the panels have the same scale (facetingScales="fixed"). They can be made independent, by setting scales to free, free_x, or free_y.

# Facet with free scalesggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames=c("dose", "supp"), facetingScales="free")

ggplot2.stripchart : Easy one dimensional scatter plot using ggplot2 and R software - Easy Guides - Wiki (46)

As you can see in the above plot, y axis have different scales in the different panels.

Facet label apperance

# Change facet text font. Possible values for the font style: #'plain', 'italic', 'bold', 'bold.italic'.ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames=c("dose","supp"), facetingFont=c(12, 'bold.italic', "red"))# Change the apperance of the rectangle around facet labelggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', groupName='supp', legendPosition="top", faceting=TRUE, facetingVarNames=c("dose","supp"), facetingRect=list(background="white", lineType="solid", lineColor="black", lineSize=1.5) )

brewerPaletteThis can be also used to indicate group colors. In this case the parameter groupColors should be NULL. e.g: brewerPalette=“Paired”.
….Other arguments passed on to ggplot2.customize custom function or to geom_jitter and to geom_boxplot functions from ggplot2 package.

The other arguments which can be used are described at this link : ggplot2 customize. They are used to customize the plot (axis, title, background, color, legend, ….) generated using ggplot2 or easyGgplot2 R package.

Examples

df <- ToothGrowthggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len', mainTitle="Plot of length according\n to the dose", xtitle="Dose (mg)", ytitle="Length")#Or use thisplot<-ggplot2.stripchart(data=df, xName='dose',yName='len')plot<-ggplot2.customize(plot, mainTitle="Plot of length according\n to the dose", xtitle="Dose (mg)", ytitle="Length")print(plot)

ggplot2.jitter can be also used instead of ggplot2.stripchart.
