Create Diminutive Distribution Charts

Description

‘The Economist’ has a unique boxplot aesthetic f or communicating distrribution characteristics. Tools are provided to create similar charts in ‘ggplot2’.

Inspired by: https://www.economist.com/united-states/2019/06/29/will-transparent-pricing-make-americas-health-care-cheaper

What’s Inside The Tin

  • add_econodist_legend: Helper utility to get an econodist legend into a ggplot2 plot
  • econodist_legend_grob: Create a legend grob that can be used with econodist charts
  • geom_econodist: Econodist geom / stat
  • left_align: Helper to flush ggplot2 plot components to the left
  • mammogram_costs: Cost of a mammogram in various U.S. Citites (2016, USD)
  • theme_econodist: A more current Economist-style ggplot2 theme

The following functions are implemented:

Installation

install.packages("ggeconodist", repos = "https://cinc.rud.is")
# or
remotes::install_git("https://git.rud.is/hrbrmstr/ggeconodist.git")
# or
remotes::install_git("https://git.sr.ht/~hrbrmstr/ggeconodist")
# or
remotes::install_gitlab("hrbrmstr/ggeconodist")
# or
remotes::install_bitbucket("hrbrmstr/ggeconodist")
# or
remotes::install_github("hrbrmstr/ggeconodist")

NOTE: To use the ‘remotes’ install options you will need to have the {remotes} package installed.

Usage

library(ggeconodist)

# current version
packageVersion("ggeconodist")
## [1] '0.1.0'

The whole shebang

YOU WILL NEED to install these fonts to use the built-in theme. More on how to do that at some point.
