Hi all,
I'm currently working through "The Analysis of Time Series" by Chris
Chatfield. In order to also get a better understanding of R, I play
around with the examples and Exercises (no homework or assignement,
just selfstudy!!).
Exercise 2.1 gives the following dataset (sales figures for 4 week
intervals):
> sales2.1.dataframe
1995 1996 1997 1998
1 153 133 145 111
2 189 177 200 170
3 221 241 187 243
4 215 228 201 178
5 302 283 292 248
6 223 255 220 202
7 201 238 233 163
8 173 164 172 139
9 121 128 119 120
10 106 108 81 96
11 86 87 65 95
12 87 74 76 53
13 108 95 74 94
I want to plot the histograms/densities for all four years in one window.
After trying out a couple of things, I finally ended up with the following
(it took me two hours - Ouch!):
sales2.1 <- c(153,189,221,215,302,223,201,173,121,106,86,87,108,
133,177,241,228,283,255,238,164,128,108,87,74,95,
145,200,187,201,292,220,233,172,119,81,65,76,74,
111,170,243,178,248,202,163,139,120,96,95,53,94)
sales2.1.matrix <- sales2.1
dim(sales2.1.matrix) <- c(4,13)
sales2.1.dataframe <- as.data.frame(sales2.1.matrix)
names(sales2.1.dataframe) <- c("1995","1996","1997","1998")
X11()
split.screen(c(2,2))
for (i in 1:4)
{
screen(i)
hist(sales2.1.dataframe[[i]],
probability=T,
xlim=c(0,400),
ylim=c(0,0.006),
main=names(sales2.1.dataframe)[i],
xlab="Sales")
lines(density(sales2.1.dataframe[[i]]))
}
close.screen(all=TRUE)
Although I'm happy that I finally got something that is pretty close
to what I wanted, I'm not sure whether this is the best or most elegant
way to do it. How would you do it? What functions/packages should I
look into, in order to improve these plots?
Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions,
Peter
