## sab-R-metrics: Intermediate Boxplots and Histograms

January 20, 2011
By

Last week, I began talking about using the base graphics in R. Those graphics were pretty bland, and my hope for the next two posts is to introduce some interesting additions to the basic graphics that come from R: color, legends, lines, shapes, multiple graphs side-by-side, text, point types, and custom axes. If you have missed...

## sab-R-metrics: Beginning with Boxplots, Scatterplots, and Histograms

January 15, 2011
By

Today I decided to begin more with visualizations and less with basic statistical analysis for sabermetrics using R. I'm not really here to teach the ins and outs of regressions and statistical tests, so once I get there, I'm hoping that those who have read this already have a decent understanding of those subjects before implementing them. ...

## Reader suggestions on alternative ways to create combination dotplot/boxplot

October 24, 2010
By

Kudos to several of our readers, who suggested simpler ways to craft the graphical display (combination dotplot/boxplot) from our most recent example.Yihui Xie combines a boxplot with a coarsened version of the PCS scores (using the round() function) u...

## Example 8.10: Combination dotplot/boxplot (teaching graphic in honor of World Statistics Day)

October 19, 2010
By

In honor of World Statistics Day and the read paper that my co-authors Chris Wild, Maxine Pfannkuch, Matt Regan, and I are presenting at the Royal Statistical Society today, we present the R code to generate a combination dotplot/boxplot that is useful...

## Boxplots or raw data graphs?

October 14, 2010
By

We recently had a dilemma for an OSI publication about the design for the graphs. There will be dozens of these graphs showing the mean score on a given variable for nearly 11000 parents from 10 countries. This example is for household wealt...

## Labeled outliers in R boxplot

Boxplots are a good way to get some insight in your data, and while R provides a fine ‘boxplot’ function, it doesn’t label the outliers in the graph. However, with a little code you can add labels yourself:The numbers plotted next to ...

## Bayesian First Aid: Two Sample t-test

February 24, 2014
By

As spring follows winter once more here down in southern Sweden, the two sample t-test follows the one sample t-test. This is a continuation of the Bayesian First Aid alternative to the one sample t-test where I’ll introduce the two sample alternative. It will be a quite short post as the two sample alternative is just more of...

## Quick and dirty notes on General Linear Mix Models

February 24, 2014
By

My datasets tend to have random factors. I try to stick to general models whenever I can to avoid dealing with both random factors and complex error distributions (not always possible). I am compiling some notes here to avoid visiting … Continue reading →
