stat_fit_tb fits a model and returns a "tidy" version of the model's summary or ANOVA table, using 'tidy() methods from packages 'broom', 'broom.mixed', or other 'broom' extensions. The annotation is added to the plots in tabular form.

Usage

stat_fit_tb(
  mapping = NULL,
  data = NULL,
  geom = "table_npc",
  method = "lm",
  method.args = list(formula = y ~ x),
  n.min = 2L,
  tidy.args = list(),
  tb.type = "fit.summary",
  tb.vars = NULL,
  tb.params = NULL,
  digits = 3,
  p.digits = digits,
  label.x = "center",
  label.y = "top",
  label.x.npc = NULL,
  label.y.npc = NULL,
  position = "identity",
  table.theme = NULL,
  table.rownames = FALSE,
  table.colnames = TRUE,
  table.hjust = 1,
  parse = FALSE,
  na.rm = FALSE,
  show.legend = FALSE,
  inherit.aes = TRUE,
  ...
)

Arguments

mapping

The aesthetic mapping, usually constructed with aes. 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

method

character.

method.args, tidy.args

lists of arguments to pass to method and to tidy().

n.min

integer Minimum number of distinct values in the explanatory variable (on the rhs of formula) for fitting to the attempted.

tb.type

character One of "fit.summary", "fit.anova" or "fit.coefs".

tb.vars, tb.params

character or numeric vectors, optionally named, used to select and/or rename the columns or the parameters in the table returned.

digits

integer indicating the number of significant digits to be used for all numeric values in the table.

p.digits

integer indicating the number of decimal places to round p-values to, with those rounded to zero displayed as the next larger possible value preceded by "<". If p.digits is outside the range 1..22 no rounding takes place.

label.x, label.y

numeric Coordinates (in data units) to be used for absolute positioning of the output. If too short they will be recycled.

label.x.npc, label.y.npc

numeric with range 0..1 or character. Coordinates to be used for positioning the output, expressed in "normalized parent coordinates" or character string. If too short they will be recycled.

position

The position adjustment to use for overlapping points on this layer

table.theme

NULL, list or function A 'gridExtra' ttheme definition, or a constructor for a ttheme or NULL for default.

table.rownames, table.colnames

logical flag to enable or disabling printing of row names and column names.

table.hjust

numeric Horizontal justification for the core and column headings of the table.

parse

If TRUE, the labels will be parsed into expressions and displayed as described in ?plotmath.

na.rm

a logical indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.

show.legend

logical. Should this layer be included in the legends? NA, the default, includes if any aesthetics are mapped. FALSE never includes, and TRUE always includes.

inherit.aes

If FALSE, overrides the default aesthetics, rather than combining with them. This is most useful for helper functions that define both data and aesthetics and shouldn't inherit behaviour from the default plot specification, e.g. borders.

...

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 tibble with columns named fm.tb (a tibble returned by

tidy() with possibly renamed and subset columns and rows, within a list), fm.tb.type (copy of argument passed to tb.type),

fm.class (the class of the fitted model object), fm.method

(the fit function's name), fm.call (the call if available), x

and y.

To explore the values returned by this statistic, which vary depending on the model fitting function and model formula we suggest the use of

geom_debug.

Details

stat_fit_tb() Applies a model fitting function per panel, using the grouping factors from aesthetic mappings in the fitted model. This is suitable, for example for analysis of variance used to test for differences among groups.

The argument to method can be any fit method for which a suitable tidy() method is available, including non-linear regression. Fit methods retain their default arguments unless overridden.

A ggplot statistic receives as data a data frame that is not the one passed as argument by the user, but instead a data frame with the variables mapped to aesthetics. In other words, it respects the grammar of graphics and consequently within arguments passed through method.args names of aesthetics like \(x\) and \(y\) should be used instead of the original variable names. The plot's default data is used by default, which helps ensure that the model is fitted to the same data as plotted in other layers.

Computed variables

The output of tidy() is returned as a single "cell" in a tibble (i.e., a tibble nested within a tibble). The returned data object contains a single tibble, containing the result from a single model fit to all data in a panel. If grouping is present, it is ignored in the sense of returning a single table, but the grouping aesthetic can be a term in the fitted model.
