Figures for the MBR Manuscript

This vignette produces the graphs included in the initial MBR manuscript.

Figure 1: Cartesian Rolling - 2005 Version

Figure 1: Raw monthly birth rates (General Fertility Rates; GFR's) for Oklahoma County, 1990-1999, plotted in a linear plot; the “bombing effect” is located ten months after the Oklahoma City bombing.

Figure 2: Cartesian Rolling - 2014 Version

Smoothed monthly birth rates (General Fertility Rates; GFRs) for Oklahoma County, 1990-1999, plotted in a linear plot. The top plot shows the connected raw data with a February smoother; the middle plot shows smoothing with a 12-month moving average, blue/green line, superimposed on a February smoother, red line); the bottom plot shows the smoothers and confidence bands, which are H-spreads defined using the distribution of GFR's for the given month and 11 previous months.

First, some R packages are loaded, and some variables and functions are defined.

changeMonth <- base::as.Date("1996-02-15") #as.Date("1995-04-19") + lubridate::weeks(39) = "1996-01-17"

vpLayout <- function(x, y) { grid::viewport(layout.pos.row=x, layout.pos.col=y) }

fullSpread <- function( scores ) { 
  return( base::range(scores) ) #A new function isn't necessary.  It's defined in order to be consistent.
}
hSpread <- function( scores ) { 
  return( stats::quantile(x=scores, probs=c(.25, .75)) ) 
}
seSpread <- function( scores ) { 
  return( base::mean(scores) + base::c(-1, 1) * stats::sd(scores) / base::sqrt(base::sum(!base::is.na(scores))) ) 
}
bootSpread <- function( scores, conf=.68 ) {
  plugin <- function( d, i ) { base::mean(d[i]) }

  distribution <- boot::boot(data=scores, plugin, R=99) #999 for the publication
  ci <- boot::boot.ci(distribution, type = c("bca"), conf=conf)
  return( ci$bca[4:5] ) #The fourth & fifth elements correspond to the lower & upper bound.
}

Individual Components

Here is the basic linear rolling graph. It doesn't require much specification, and will work with a wide range of approriate datasets. This first (unpublished) graph displays all components.

# dsLinearAll <- utils::read.csv("./Datasets/CountyMonthBirthRate2005Version.csv", stringsAsFactors=FALSE)
# dsLinearAll$Date <- base::as.Date(dsLinearAll$Date)
# dsLinearOkc <- dsLinearAll[dsLinearAll$CountyName=="oklahoma", ] 

# Uncomment the next two lines to use the version built into the package.  By default, it uses the
# CSV to promote reproducible research, since the CSV format is more open and accessible to more software.
dsLinearAll <- CountyMonthBirthRate2005Version
dsLinearOkc <- dsLinearAll[dsLinearAll$CountyName=="oklahoma", ]

dsLinearOkc <- Wats::AugmentYearDataWithMonthResolution(dsLinear=dsLinearOkc, dateName="Date")

portfolioCartesian <- Wats::AnnotateData(dsLinearOkc, dvName="BirthRate", centerFunction=stats::median, spreadFunction=hSpread)

Wats::CartesianRolling(
  dsLinear = portfolioCartesian$dsLinear, 
  xName = "Date", 
  yName = "BirthRate", 
  stageIDName = "StageID", 
  changePoints = changeMonth, 
  changePointLabels = "Bombing Effect"
)

The version for the manuscript was tweaked to take advantage of certain features of the dataset. This is what it looks like when all three stylized panels are combined.
