Hello All!
I am trying to plot the frequency of species coocurrance.
If given a data set similar like this...(V1="species A", V2="species B",
V3="frequency of cooccurance")
> data
V1 V2 V3
1 A B 0
2 A C 2
3 A D 5
4 B C 0
5 B D 1
6 C D 0
> data1<-as.data.frame(lapply(data,function(x)(rep(x,data$V3))))
> as.data.frame(data1[-1])
> fdata<-ftable(as.data.frame(data1[-3]))
> fdata
V2 B C D
V1
A 0 2 5
B 0 0 1
C 0 0 0
Question 1: How can I create a matrix or (contingency) table that would
include "A, B, C and D" in columns and "A, B, C, and D" in the rows (through
R, not manually adjusting the original data text file).
- When I "lapply(data,function(x)(rep(x,data$V3)))", the rows with V3=0 are
dropped.
Question 2: How would I graph the frequency of the counts (V3) (would look
most likely follow the poisson distribution).
I've used plot(table(data$V3)) to get the correct graph, but is there a way
to graph the frequency from a contingency table (question 1) to elicit the
same graph?
Thanks in advance for your help...
Best,
Lanna
