Description

Plot, draw regression line and confidence interval, and show regression equation, R-square and P-value, as simple as possible,

by using different models built in the ‘trendline()’ function. The function includes the following models in the latest version:

“line2P” (formula as: y=a*x+b),

“line3P” (y=a*x2+b*x+c),

“log2P” (y=a*ln(x)+b),

“exp2P” (y=a*eb*x),

“exp3P” (y=a*eb*x+c),

“power2P” (y=a*xb),

“power3P” (y=a*xb+c).

Besides, the summarized results of each fitted model are also output by default.

Usage

trendline(x, y, model = "line2P", Pvalue.corrected = TRUE,
       linecolor = "blue", lty = 1, lwd = 1, 
       show.equation = TRUE, show.Rpvalue = TRUE, 
       Rname = 1, Pname = 0, xname = "x", yname = "y",
       yhat = FALSE, 
       summary = TRUE, 
       ePos.x = NULL, ePos.y = NULL, text.col = "black", eDigit = 5, eSize = 1, 
       CI.fill = TRUE, CI.level = 0.95, CI.color = "grey",    CI.alpha = 1, CI.lty = 1, CI.lwd = 1, 
       las = 1, xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL, ...)

Arguments


x, y

the x and y arguments provide the x and y coordinates for the plot. Any reasonable way of defining the coordinates is acceptable.


model

select which model to fit. Default is “line2P”. The “model” should be one of c(“line2P”, “line3P”, “log2P”, “exp3P”, “power3P”), their formulas are as follows:

“line2P”: y=a*x+b

“line3P”: y=a*x2+b*x+c

“log2P”: y=a*ln(x)+b

“exp2P”: y=a*eb*x

“exp3P”: y=a*eb*x+c

“power2P”: y=a*xb

“power3P”: y=a*xb+c


Pvalue.corrected

if P-value corrected or not, the vlaue is one of c(“TRUE”, “FALSE”).


linecolor

color of regression line.


lty

line type. lty can be specified using either text c(“blank”,”solid”,”dashed”,”dotted”,”dotdash”,”longdash”,”twodash”) or number c(0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Note that lty = “solid” is identical to lty=1.


lwd

line width. Default is 1.


show.equation

whether to show the regression equation, the value is one of c(“TRUE”, “FALSE”).


show.Rpvalue

whether to show the R-square and P-value, the value is one of c(“TRUE”, “FALSE”).


Rname

to specify the character of R-square, the value is one of c(0, 1), corresponding to c(r^2, R^2).


Pname

to specify the character of P-value, the value is one of c(0, 1), corresponding to c(p, P).


xname

to specify the character of “x” in equation, see Examples [case 5].


yname

to specify the character of “y” in equation, see Examples [case 5].


yhat

whether to add a hat symbol (^) on the top of “y” in equation. Default is FALSE.


summary

summarizing the model fits. Default is TRUE.


ePos.x, ePos.y

equation position. Default as ePos.x = “topleft”. If no need to show equation, set ePos.x = NA. It’s same as those in legend.


text.col

the color used for the legend text.


eDigit

the numbers of digits for equation parameters. Default is 5.


eSize

font size in percentage of equation. Default is 1.


CI.fill

fill the confidance interval? (TRUE by default, see ‘CI.level’ to control)


CI.level

level of confidence interval to use (0.95 by default)


CI.color

line or fill color of confidence interval.


CI.alpha

alpha value of fill color of confidence interval.


CI.lty

line type of confidence interval.


CI.lwd

line width of confidence interval.


las

style of axis labels. (0=parallel, 1=all horizontal, 2=all perpendicular to axis, 3=all vertical)


xlab, ylab

labels of x- and y-axis.



additional parameters to plot,such as type, main, sub, xlab, ylab, col.

Details

The linear models (line2P, line3P, log2P) in this package are estimated by lm function, while the nonlinear models (exp2P, exp3P, power2P, power3P) are estimated by nls function (i.e., least-squares method).

The argument ‘Pvalue.corrected’ is workful for non-linear regression only.

If “Pvalue.corrected = TRUE”, the P-vlaue is calculated by using “Residual Sum of Squares” and “Corrected Total Sum of Squares (i.e. sum((y-mean(y))^2))”.

If “Pvalue.corrected = TRUE”, the P-vlaue is calculated by using “Residual Sum of Squares” and “Uncorrected Total Sum of Squares (i.e. sum(y^2))”.

Note

Confidence intervals for nonlinear regression (i.e., objects of class nls) are based on the linear approximation described in Bates & Watts (2007).

Value

R2, indicates the R-Squared value of each regression model.

p, indicates the p-value of each regression model.

AIC or BIC, indicate the Akaike’s Information Criterion or Bayesian Information Criterion for fitted model. Click AIC for details. The smaller the AIC or BIC, the better the model.

RSS, indicates the “Residual Sum of Squares” of regression model.
