Plot Interaction of Categorical FactorsΒΆ

Link to Notebook GitHub

In this example, we will vizualize the interaction between categorical factors. First, we will create some categorical data are initialized. Then plotted using the interaction_plot function which internally recodes the x-factor categories to ingegers.

In [1]:
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import pandas as pd
from statsmodels.graphics.factorplots import interaction_plot
In [2]:
weight = pd.Series(np.repeat(['low', 'hi', 'low', 'hi'], 15), name='weight')
nutrition = pd.Series(np.repeat(['lo_carb', 'hi_carb'], 30), name='nutrition')
days = np.log(np.random.randint(1, 30, size=60))
In [3]:
fig, ax = plt.subplots(figsize=(6, 6))
fig = interaction_plot(x=weight, trace=nutrition, response=days,
                       colors=['red', 'blue'], markers=['D', '^'], ms=10, ax=ax)
