{ggstatsplot}: {ggplot2} Based Plots with Statistical Details

StatusUsageMiscellaneous

Raison d’être

“What is to be sought in designs for the display of information is the clear portrayal of complexity. Not the complication of the simple; rather … the revelation of the complex.” - Edward R. Tufte

{ggstatsplot} is an extension of {ggplot2} package for creating graphics with details from statistical tests included in the information-rich plots themselves. In a typical exploratory data analysis workflow, data visualization and statistical modeling are two different phases: visualization informs modeling, and modeling in its turn can suggest a different visualization method, and so on and so forth. The central idea of {ggstatsplot} is simple: combine these two phases into one in the form of graphics with statistical details, which makes data exploration simpler and faster.

Acknowledgments

I would like to thank all the contributors to {ggstatsplot} who pointed out bugs or requested features I hadn’t considered. I would especially like to thank other package developers (especially Daniel Lüdecke, Dominique Makowski, Mattan S. Ben-Shachar, Brenton Wiernik, Patrick Mair, Salvatore Mangiafico, etc.) who have patiently and diligently answered my relentless questions and supported feature requests in their projects. I also want to thank Chuck Powell for his initial contributions to the package.

The hexsticker was generously designed by Sarah Otterstetter (Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin). This package has also benefited from the larger #rstats community on Twitter, LinkedIn, and StackOverflow.

Thanks are also due to my postdoc advisers (Mina Cikara and Fiery Cushman at Harvard University; Iyad Rahwan at Max Planck Institute for Human Development) who patiently supported me spending hundreds (?) of hours working on this package rather than what I was paid to do.
