svyplot {survey} | R Documentation |

Because observations in survey samples may represent very different
numbers of units in the population ordinary plots can be misleading.
The `svyplot`

function produces plots adjusted in various ways
for sampling weights.

svyplot(formula, design,...) ## Default S3 method: svyplot(formula, design, style = c("bubble", "hex", "grayhex","subsample","transparent"), sample.size = 500, subset = NULL, legend = 1, inches = 0.05, amount=NULL, basecol="black", alpha=c(0, 0.8),xbins=30,...)

`formula` |
A model formula |

`design` |
A survey object (svydesign or svrepdesign) |

`style` |
See Details below |

`sample.size` |
For `style="subsample"` |

`subset` |
expression using variables in the design object |

`legend` |
For `style="hex"` or `"grayhex"` |

`inches` |
Scale for bubble plots |

`amount` |
list with `x` and `y` components for amount of
jittering to use in subsample plots, or `NULL` for the default
amount |

`basecol` |
base color for transparent plots, or a function to compute the color (see below) |

`alpha` |
minimum and maximum opacity for transparent plots |

`xbins` |
Number of (x-axis) bins for hexagonal binning |

`...` |
Passed to `plot` methods |

Bubble plots are scatterplots with circles whose area is proportional
to the sampling weight. The two "hex" styles produce hexagonal
binning scatterplots, and require the `hexbin`

package from
Bioconductor. The "transparent" style plots points with opacity
proportional to sampling weight.

The `subsample`

method uses the sampling weights to create a
sample from approximately the population distribution and passes this to `plot`

Bubble plots are suited to small surveys, hexagonal binning and transparency to large surveys where plotting all the points would result in too much overlap.

`basecol`

can be a function taking one data frame argument, which
will be passed the data frame of variables from the survey object.
This could be memory-intensive for large data sets.
