# plotDeviationsBoxes

##### Produces boxplots of the deviations of the observed values from the smoothed values over values of x.

Produces boxplots of the deviations of the observed values from the smoothed values over values of x.

##### Usage

```
plotDeviationsBoxes(data, observed, smoothed, x.factor,
x.title = NULL, y.titles = NULL,
facet.x = ".", facet.y = ".", labeller = NULL,
df, deviations.plots = "absolute",
ggplotFuncs = NULL, ...)
```

##### Arguments

- data
A

`data.frame`

containing the observed and smoothed values from which the deviations are to be computed.- observed
A

`character`

specifying the response variable for which the observed values are supplied.- smoothed
A

`character`

specifying the smoothed response variable, corresponding to`observed`

, for which values are supplied.- x.factor
- x.title
Title for the x-axis. If

`NULL`

then set to`xname`

.- y.titles
A

`character`

giving the titles for the y-axis, one for each plot specified`deviations.plots`

.- facet.x
A

`data.frame`

giving the variable to be used to form subsets to be plotted in separate columns of plots. Use`"."`

if a split into columns is not wanted. For`which.plots`

set to`methodcompare`

or`dfcompare`

`facet.x`

is ignored.- facet.y
A

`data.frame`

giving the variable to be used to form subsets to be plotted in separate rows of plots. Use`"."`

if a split into columns is not wanted.- labeller
A

`ggplot`

`function`

for labelling the facets of a plot produced using the`ggplot`

function. For more information see`ggplot`

.- df
A

`numeric`

specifying the set of degrees of freedom to be probed.- deviations.plots
A

`character`

specifying whether`absolute`

and/or`relative`

deviations are to be plotted.- ggplotFuncs
A

`list`

, each element of which contains the results of evaluating a`ggplot`

function. It is created by calling the`list`

function with a`ggplot`

function call for each element.- ...
allows passing of arguments to

`plotLongitudinal`

.

##### Value

A `data.frame`

containing the median deviations that have been plotted.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
data(exampleData)
plotDeviationsBoxes(longi.dat, observed = "Area", smoothed = "Area.smooth",
x.factor="Days", facet.x = ".", facet.y= ".", df =5)
# }
```
