How to create a residual plot in R with better looking aesthetics?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

The default residual plot can be created by using the model object name in base R but that is not very attractive. To create a residual plot with better looking aesthetics, we can use resid_panel function of ggResidpanel package. It is created in the same way as the residual plot in base R, also it results in all the relevant graph in one window.

Example

Consider the below data frame −

Live Demo

> x<-rnorm(20)
> y<-rnorm(20)
> df<-data.frame(x,y)
> df

Output

x y

Example

> Model<-lm(y~x,data=df)

Loading ggResidpanel package and creating the residual plot −

Example

> library(ggResidpanel)
> resid_panel(Model)
