## frequency table?

 Hello R-users, I've got a file with individuals as colums and the clusters where they occur in as rows. And I wanted a table which tells me how many times each individual occurs with another. I don't really know how such a table is called...it is not a frequency table....My eventual goal is to make Venn-diagrams from the occurence of my individuals. So I've this: cluster   ind1 ind2 ind3 etc. 1            0      1     2 2            3       0    1 3            1       1     1 And I want to go to this:             ind1      ind2      ind3 ind1      0          4            2 ind2      4          0            4 ind3      2           4           1 is there a way to do this? Thank you for your help

Hi set, Your example is a bit hard to figure out. In particular, individual 1 seems to be in cluster 2 three times, and individual 3 in cluster 1 twice. I could understand it if the top table looked like this: cluster   ind1 ind2 ind3 ... 1            0    1    1 ... 2            1    0    1 ... 3            1    1    1 ... That tells me that individual 1 is in cluster 2 and 3 but not in cluster 1, and so on. If you look at the first example in the intersectDiagram function in the plotrix package, you will see something similar, except that individuals are rows and common attributes (belonging to sets) are columns. You can get an intersection diagram from that showing how many individuals are in each combination of sets. This is similar to a Venn diagram, except that the population of each intersection is represented by the width of a rectangle and a text representation of that population. Thinking about it, maybe you are trying to represent both types of individuals (that is, there exists more than one of individual type 1 and so on) and attributes (belonging to clusters). In this case you are trying to get the intersections of two independent groups of sets. So, I created a dataset in which individuals can have personal characteristics (sex, age) and scholastic characteristics (which subjects they study). funnystuff<-data.frame(math=sample(c(0,1),100,TRUE),   biology=sample(c(0,1),100,TRUE),   english=sample(c(0,1),100,TRUE),   sex=sample(c(0,1),100,TRUE),   over18=sample(c(0,1),100,TRUE)) library(plotrix) intersectDiagram(funnystuff,main="Studies by sex and age",sep="\n") This gives me an interesting diagram from which I can get various intersections of these two groups of attributes. Is this what you are seeking?
