Continuous quantiles.

Continuous quantiles.

Usage
stat_quantile(mapping = NULL, data = NULL,
    geom = "quantile", position = "identity",
    quantiles = c(0.25, 0.5, 0.75), formula = NULL,
    method = "rq", na.rm = FALSE, ...)
Arguments
quantiles
conditional quantiles of y to calculate and display
formula
formula relating y variables to x variables
method
Quantile regression method to use. Currently only supports rq.
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
...
other arguments passed on to layer. This can include aesthetics whose values you want to set, not map. See layer for more details.
Value

  • a data.frame with additional columns:
  • quantilequantile of distribution

Aesthetics

[results=rd,stage=build]{ggplot2:::rd_aesthetics("stat", "quantile")} msamp <- movies[sample(nrow(movies), 1000), ] m <- ggplot(msamp, aes(year, rating)) + geom_point() m + stat_quantile() m + stat_quantile(quantiles = 0.5) q10 <- seq(0.05, 0.95, by=0.05) m + stat_quantile(quantiles = q10)

# You can also use rqss to fit smooth quantiles m + stat_quantile(method = "rqss") # Note that rqss doesn't pick a smoothing constant automatically, so # you'll need to tweak lambda yourself m + stat_quantile(method = "rqss", lambda = 10) m + stat_quantile(method = "rqss", lambda = 100)

# Use 'votes' as weights for the quantile calculation m + stat_quantile(aes(weight=votes))

# Change scale m + stat_quantile(aes(colour = ..quantile..), quantiles = q10) m + stat_quantile(aes(colour = ..quantile..), quantiles = q10) + scale_colour_gradient2(midpoint = 0.5)

# Set aesthetics to fixed value m + stat_quantile(colour = "red", size = 2, linetype = 2)

# Use qplot instead qplot(year, rating, data=movies, geom="quantile")
