Arguments

data

a data frame

include

variables to include, accepts tidy-select syntax

weights

optional variable name of a weighting variable, accepts tidy-select syntax

y

name of the variable to be plotted on y axis (relevant when .question is mapped to "facets, see examples), accepts tidy-select syntax

variable_labels

a named list or a named vector of custom variable labels

sort

should the factor defined by factor_to_sort be sorted according to the answers (see sort_method)? One of "none" (default), "ascending" or "descending"

sort_method

method used to sort the variables: "prop" sort according to the proportion of answers higher than the centered level, "prop_lower" according to the proportion lower than the centered level, "mean" considers answer as a score and sort according to the mean score, "median" used the median and the majority judgment rule for tie-breaking.

sort_prop_include_center

when sorting with "prop" and if the number of levels is uneven, should half of the central level be taken into account to compute the proportion?

factor_to_sort

name of the factor column to sort if sort is not equal to "none"; by default the list of questions passed to include; should be one factor column of the tibble returned by gglikert_data(); accepts tidy-select syntax

exclude_fill_values

Vector of values that should not be displayed (but still taken into account for computing proportions), see position_likert()

cutoff

number of modalities to be displayed negatively (i.e. on the left of the x axis or the bottom of the y axis), could be a decimal value: 2 to display negatively the two first modalities, 2.5 to display negatively the two first modalities and half of the third, 2.2 to display negatively the two first modalities and a fifth of the third (see examples). By default (NULL), it will be equal to the number of modalities divided by 2, i.e. it will be centered.

data_fun

for advanced usage, custom function to be applied to the generated dataset at the end of gglikert_data()

add_labels

should percentage labels be added to the plot?

labels_size

size of the percentage labels

labels_color

color of the percentage labels ("auto" to use hex_bw() to determine a font color based on background color)

labels_accuracy

accuracy of the percentages, see scales::label_percent()

labels_hide_below

if provided, values below will be masked, see label_percent_abs()

add_totals

should the total proportions of negative and positive answers be added to plot? This option is not compatible with facets!

totals_size

size of the total proportions

totals_color

color of the total proportions

totals_accuracy

accuracy of the total proportions, see scales::label_percent()

totals_fontface

font face of the total proportions

totals_include_center

if the number of levels is uneven, should half of the center level be added to the total proportions?

totals_hjust

horizontal adjustment of totals labels on the x axis

y_reverse

should the y axis be reversed?

y_label_wrap

number of characters per line for y axis labels, see scales::label_wrap()

reverse_likert

if TRUE, will reverse the default stacking order, see position_likert()

width

bar width, see ggplot2::geom_bar()

facet_rows, facet_cols

A set of variables or expressions quoted by ggplot2::vars() and defining faceting groups on the rows or columns dimension (see examples)

facet_label_wrap

number of characters per line for facet labels, see ggplot2::label_wrap_gen()

add_median_line

add a vertical line at 50%?

reverse_fill

if TRUE, will reverse the default stacking order, see ggplot2::position_fill()

Value

A ggplot2 plot or a tibble.

Details

Combines several factor variables using the same list of ordered levels (e.g. Likert-type scales) into a unique data frame and generates a centered bar plot.

You could use gglikert_data() to just produce the dataset to be plotted.

If variable labels have been defined (see labelled::var_label()), they will be considered. You can also pass custom variables labels with the variable_labels argument.
