## relationship between two factors

 I have a dataset with two variables that are factors: 1) Decision Making Satisfaction (DMS), values = A - Completely, B - Mostly, C - Partly, D - Not at all 2) IT Satisfaction values (ITS), values = A - Completely, B - Mostly, C - Partly, D - Not at all I would like to produce a table (matrix) and a chart of the factors, with counts at the cross sections:          A   B   C   D A   B       counts C D How can I do this in R? Many thanks, Chris -- This message has been scanned for viruses and dangerous content by MailScanner, and is believed to be clean. ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.htmland provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.

## Re: relationship between two factors

 The 'table' function will give you the simple counts.  Plotting a table with the 'plot' function gives common charts for this.  The 'CrossTable' function in the gmodels package creates the table along with additional information.  There are a lot of other functions for creating/working with tables depending on what you are trying to do.

The latter is in the vcd package on CRAN.

 In reply to this post by snowch ?table should work table (DMS, ITS) I am not clear on what kind of chart you want. will plot(DMS, ITS) do what you want? --- christopher snow <[hidden email]> wrote: > I have a dataset with two variables that are > factors: > > 1) Decision Making Satisfaction (DMS), values = A - > Completely, B - > Mostly, C - Partly, D - Not at all > 2) IT Satisfaction values (ITS), values = A - > Completely, B - Mostly, C > - Partly, D - Not at all > > I would like to produce a table (matrix) and a chart > of the factors, > with counts at the cross sections: > >          A   B   C   D > A   > B       counts > C > D > > How can I do this in R? > > Many thanks, > > Chris       Looking for the perfect gift?
