Dear list,
I have a problem with plotting multivariate data and models.
I suppose the answer is obvious for experienced users but I didn't find it
looking in usual documentation or in the mail archive...
Let's say I use a dataset like :
a <- sort(round(rnorm(90),3))
niv <- factor(c(rep('B',30), rep('E', 30), rep('H',30)),labels=c('B','E','H'))
cl3 <- factor(rep(sequence(1:3),15))
mat <- cbind(a,niv,cl3)
let's say I want a model like :
mod <- lm(a~niv*cl3) #silly, just for example
I want to obtain a scatterplot of 'a' vs. 'cl3', taking into account the
value of 'niv' so I use :
plot(a~as.integer(cl3), col=as.integer(niv))
NB : I don't use lm(a~cl3) because the output is a boxplot in this case.
Is there a simple way to obtain the 3 regression lines for the 3 levels
of 'niv' on this scatterplot ?
I tried a solution using lines() or abline() and expressions with
mod$coefficients[n], but it becomes very complicated as the number
of levels and interactions increase.
Maybe my plotting method is totally wrong ?
Many thanks for taking time for a newbie.
