(x, trace, response, func=<function mean>, ax=None, plottype='b', xlabel=None, ylabel=None, colors=None, markers=None, linestyles=None, legendloc='best', legendtitle=None, **kwargs)[source]¶ Interaction plot for factor level statistics.
Note. If categorial factors are supplied levels will be internally recoded to integers. This ensures matplotlib compatiblity.
uses pandas.DataFrame to calculate an aggregate statistic for each level of the factor or group given by trace.
Parameters:  x (arraylike) – The x factor levels constitute the xaxis. If a pandas.Series is given its name will be used in xlabel if xlabel is None.
 trace (arraylike) – The trace factor levels will be drawn as lines in the plot. If trace is a pandas.Series its name will be used as the legendtitle if legendtitle is None.
 response (arraylike) – The reponse or dependent variable. If a pandas.Series is given its name will be used in ylabel if ylabel is None.
 func (function) – Anything accepted by pandas.DataFrame.aggregate. This is applied to the response variable grouped by the trace levels.
 plottype (str {'line', 'scatter', 'both'}, optional) – The type of plot to return. Can be ‘l’, ‘s’, or ‘b’
 ax (axes, optional) – Matplotlib axes instance
 xlabel (str, optional) – Label to use for x. Default is ‘X’. If x is a pandas.Series it will use the series names.
 ylabel (str, optional) – Label to use for response. Default is ‘func of response’. If response is a pandas.Series it will use the series names.
 colors (list, optional) – If given, must have length == number of levels in trace.
 linestyles (list, optional) – If given, must have length == number of levels in trace.
 markers (list, optional) – If given, must have length == number of lovels in trace
 kwargs – These will be passed to the plot command used either plot or scatter. If you want to control the overall plotting options, use kwargs.
Returns: fig – The figure given by ax.figure or a new instance.
Return type: Figure
Examples
>>> import numpy as np >>> np.random.seed(12345) >>> weight = np.random.randint(1,4,size=60) >>> duration = np.random.randint(1,3,size=60) >>> days = np.log(np.random.randint(1,30, size=60)) >>> fig = interaction_plot(weight, duration, days, ... colors=['red','blue'], markers=['D','^'], ms=10) >>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> plt.show()
