How to create scatterplot for factor levels in an R data frame?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create a scatterplot for factor levels, we can use facet_grid function of ggplot2 package. For example, suppose we have a factor column in a data frame df defined as F and numerical columns defined as x and y then the scatterplot for the factor levels can be created as −

ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()+facet_grid(~Factor)

Example

 Live Demo

Consider the below data frame −

set.seed(1251)
Factor<−as.factor(sample(LETTERS[1:4],20,replace=TRUE))
x<−rnorm(20,5,2)
y<−rnorm(20,5,3)
df<−data.frame(Factor,x,y)
df

Output

   Factor    x    y
1 A 1.252323 5.5936677
2 A 6.920217 7.4327577
