Plots longitudinal data for a set of indiividuals

Produce profile or longitudinal plots of a response using ggplot. A line is drawn for the data for each individual and the plot can be facetted so that a grid of plots is produced. For each facet a line for the medians over time can be added, along with the vaue of the outer whiskers (median +/- 1.5 * IQR).

Warning: longiPlot will be deprecated in future versions, its synonym plotLongitudinal being preferred.

Arguments
data

A data.frame containing the data to be plotted.

x

A character giving the variable to be plotted on the x-axis.

response

A character specifying the response variable that is to be plotted on the y-axis.

individuals

A character giving the name(s) of the factor(s) that define the subsets of the data for which each subset corresponds to the response values for an individual.

x.title

Title for the x-axis.

y.title

Title for the y-axis.

title

Title for the plot.

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.

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.

colour

A character specifying a single colour to use in drawing the lines for the profiles. If colouring according to the values of a variable is required then use colour.column.

colour.column

A character giving the name of a column in data over whose values the colours of the lines are to be varied. The colours can be specified using colour.values .

colour.values

A character vector specifying the values of the colours to use in drawing the lines for the profiles. If this is a named vector, then the values will be matched based on the names. If unnamed, values will be matched in order (usually alphabetical) with the limits of the scale.

alpha

A numeric specifying the degrees of transparency to be used in plotting. It is a ratio in which the denominator specifies the number of points (or lines) that must be overplotted to give a solid cover.

addMediansWhiskers

A logical indicating whether plots over time of the medians and outer whiskers are to be added to the plot. The outer whiskers are related to the whiskers on a box-and-whisker and are defined as the median plus (and minus) 1.5 times the interquartile range (IQR). Points lying outside the whiskers are considered to be potential outliers.

xname

A character giving the name of the numeric that contains the values of the predictor variable from which x is derived, it being that x may incorporate an expression.

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.

printPlot

A logical indicating whether or not to print the plot.

Value

An object of class "ggplot", which can be plotted using print.
