I have a problem with spacing data points in a boxplot. I use the following code.
DF1 <- data.frame(x = c(1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 11, 20, 23, 24, 25, 30), y = c(3, 6, 12, 13, 17, 22, NA, NA, NA, NA, NA)) library(ggplot2) library(tidyverse) n <- 11 DF1 <- as.data.frame(DF1) DF1 <- reshape2::melt(DF1) DF1 %>% group_by(variable) %>% arrange(value) %>% mutate(xcoord = seq(-0.25, 0.25, length.out = n())) %>% ggplot(aes(x = variable, y = value, group = variable)) + geom_boxplot() + geom_point(aes(x = xcoord + as.integer(variable)))
This results in the following:
For x, all data points are evenly distributed left to right, but since y has fewer data points, they are not evenly distributed left to right. How can the above code be modified to evenly space out data points for y too? I would appreciate any suggestions.
I found a somewhat similar post here, but that could not help me.
