Superimposing two plots

If you want to give two plot commands, and do not want the second one to wipe out the first one, do the following.


plot(first plot)




plot(second plot)

John Fox’s package, “car”, has a very useful scatterplot.matrix (or simply spm) to make scatterplots of pairs from a set of variables. The plot below was created using

library(“car”) scatterplot.matrix(~Exppop+Exppphc+literacy+Oppphc, reg.line=lm, smooth=TRUE, span=0.5, diagonal = ‘density’, data=temp) dev.print(jpeg, file=”~/graph-matrix.jpg”, width=500, height=500, pointsize=10)


jitter is an interesting function that adds a small noise to a vector. A very useful feature if you want to plot data points which have some ties.
