data wrangling ggplot

Hi Rcomm

Say we have the walmart dataset from timetk library

i want a time series plot with:

  1. top 3 id based on weekly_sales
  2. all in 1 graph (meaning a total of 3 lines in a single gg line plot)

any help ?:slight_smile:

I believe the below analysis achieves what you're looking for. I wasn't sure how you'd define the "top 3" so I just used mean weekly sales.

Provided three plots - one with only the top 3, one with all IDs but only the top 3 highlighted, and finally the original plot of just the top 3 but finessed a bit to look a little nicer than the default.

wm = walmart_sales_weekly

# Find top 3

top_ids = wm %>% 
  group_by(id) %>% # group by id column
  summarise(avg_sales = mean(Weekly_Sales)) %>% # calculate average sales 
  arrange(desc(avg_sales)) %>%  # arrange averages in descending order
  head(3) # get top three

# plot - only three

(plt = wm %>% 
  semi_join(top_ids, by = "id") %>% # filter for top three (from above) 
  ggplot(aes(x = Date, y = Weekly_Sales)) +
  geom_line(aes(color = id)))

# plot - highlight top three (using gghighlight)

wm %>%
  ggplot(aes(x = Date, y = Weekly_Sales)) +
  geom_line(aes(color = id)) +
  gghighlight::gghighlight(id %in% top_ids$id,
                           use_direct_label = F,
                           use_group_by = F)

# finesse plot a bit

plt +
  labs(y = "Weekly Sales", x = "Date", color = "ID") +
  theme_light() +
  theme(legend.position = "top") +
  expand_limits(y=0) +
  scale_y_continuous(labels = scales::comma_format())
