Calculation for quantile-quantile plot.

Calculation for quantile-quantile plot.

Usage
stat_qq(mapping = NULL, data = NULL, geom = "point",
    position = "identity", distribution = qnorm,
    dparams = list(), na.rm = FALSE, ...)
Arguments
distribution
Distribution function to use, if x not specified
dparams
Parameters for distribution function
...
Other arguments passed to distribution function
na.rm
If FALSE (the default), removes missing values with a warning. If TRUE silently removes missing values.
mapping
The aesthetic mapping, usually constructed with aes or aes_string. Only needs to be set at the layer level if you are overriding the plot defaults.
data
A layer specific dataset - only needed if you want to override the plot defaults.
geom
The geometric object to use display the data
position
The position adjustment to use for overlappling points on this layer
Value

  • a data.frame with additional columns:
  • samplesample quantiles
  • theoreticaltheoretical quantiles

Aesthetics

[results=rd,stage=build]{ggplot2:::rd_aesthetics("stat", "qq")} # From ?qqplot y <- rt(200, df = 5) qplot(sample = y, stat="qq")

# qplot is smart enough to use stat_qq if you use sample qplot(sample = y) qplot(sample = precip)

qplot(sample = y, dist = qt, dparams = list(df = 5))

df <- data.frame(y) ggplot(df, aes(sample = y)) + stat_qq() ggplot(df, aes(sample = y)) + geom_point(stat = "qq")

# Use fitdistr from MASS to estimate distribution params library(MASS) params <- as.list(fitdistr(y, "t")$estimate) ggplot(df, aes(sample = y)) + stat_qq(dist = qt, dparam = params)

# Using to explore the distribution of a variable qplot(sample = mpg, data = mtcars) qplot(sample = mpg, data = mtcars, colour = factor(cyl))
