Correlation matrix containing results from pairwise correlation tests.
If you want a data frame of (grouped) correlation matrix, use
`correlation::correlation()`

instead. It can also do grouped analysis when
used with output from `dplyr::group_by()`

.

## Usage

```
ggcorrmat(
data,
cor.vars = NULL,
cor.vars.names = NULL,
matrix.type = "upper",
type = "parametric",
tr = 0.2,
partial = FALSE,
k = 2L,
sig.level = 0.05,
conf.level = 0.95,
bf.prior = 0.707,
p.adjust.method = "holm",
pch = "cross",
ggcorrplot.args = list(method = "square", outline.color = "black", pch.cex = 14),
package = "RColorBrewer",
palette = "Dark2",
colors = c("#E69F00", "white", "#009E73"),
ggtheme = ggstatsplot::theme_ggstatsplot(),
ggplot.component = NULL,
title = NULL,
subtitle = NULL,
caption = NULL,
...
)
```

## Arguments

- data
A data frame from which variables specified are to be taken.

- cor.vars
List of variables for which the correlation matrix is to be computed and visualized. If

`NULL`

(default), all numeric variables from`data`

will be used.- cor.vars.names
Optional list of names to be used for

`cor.vars`

. The names should be entered in the same order.- matrix.type
Character,

`"upper"`

(default),`"lower"`

, or`"full"`

, display full matrix, lower triangular or upper triangular matrix.- type
A character specifying the type of statistical approach:

`"parametric"`

`"nonparametric"`

`"robust"`

`"bayes"`

You can specify just the initial letter.

- tr
Trim level for the mean when carrying out

`robust`

tests. In case of an error, try reducing the value of`tr`

, which is by default set to`0.2`

. Lowering the value might help.- partial
Can be

`TRUE`

for partial correlations. For Bayesian partial correlations, "full" instead of pseudo-Bayesian partial correlations (i.e., Bayesian correlation based on frequentist partialization) are returned.- k
Number of digits after decimal point (should be an integer) (Default:

`k = 2L`

).- sig.level
Significance level (Default:

`0.05`

). If the*p*-value in*p*-value matrix is bigger than`sig.level`

, then the corresponding correlation coefficient is regarded as insignificant and flagged as such in the plot.- conf.level
Scalar between

`0`

and`1`

(default:`95%`

confidence/credible intervals,`0.95`

). If`NULL`

, no confidence intervals will be computed.- bf.prior
A number between

`0.5`

and`2`

(default`0.707`

), the prior width to use in calculating Bayes factors and posterior estimates. In addition to numeric arguments, several named values are also recognized:`"medium"`

,`"wide"`

, and`"ultrawide"`

, corresponding to*r*scale values of 1/2, sqrt(2)/2, and 1, respectively. In case of an ANOVA, this value corresponds to scale for fixed effects.- p.adjust.method
Adjustment method for

*p*-values for multiple comparisons. Possible methods are:`"holm"`

(default),`"hochberg"`

,`"hommel"`

,`"bonferroni"`

,`"BH"`

,`"BY"`

,`"fdr"`

,`"none"`

.- pch
Decides the point shape to be used for insignificant correlation coefficients (only valid when

`insig = "pch"`

). Default:`pch = "cross"`

.- ggcorrplot.args
A list of additional (mostly aesthetic) arguments that will be passed to

`ggcorrplot::ggcorrplot()`

function. The list should avoid any of the following arguments since they are already internally being used:`corr`

,`method`

,`p.mat`

,`sig.level`

,`ggtheme`

,`colors`

,`lab`

,`pch`

,`legend.title`

,`digits`

.- package, palette
Name of the package from which the given palette is to be extracted. The available palettes and packages can be checked by running

`View(paletteer::palettes_d_names)`

.- colors
A vector of 3 colors for low, mid, and high correlation values. If set to

`NULL`

, manual specification of colors will be turned off and 3 colors from the specified`palette`

from`package`

will be selected.- ggtheme
A

`{ggplot2}`

theme. Default value is`ggstatsplot::theme_ggstatsplot()`

. Any of the`{ggplot2}`

themes (e.g.,`theme_bw()`

), or themes from extension packages are allowed (e.g.,`ggthemes::theme_fivethirtyeight()`

,`hrbrthemes::theme_ipsum_ps()`

, etc.). But note that sometimes these themes will remove some of the details that`{ggstatsplot}`

plots typically contains. For example, if relevant,`ggbetweenstats()`

shows details about multiple comparison test as a label on the secondary Y-axis. Some themes (e.g.`ggthemes::theme_fivethirtyeight()`

) will remove the secondary Y-axis and thus the details as well.- ggplot.component
A

`ggplot`

component to be added to the plot prepared by`{ggstatsplot}`

. This argument is primarily helpful for`grouped_`

variants of all primary functions. Default is`NULL`

. The argument should be entered as a`{ggplot2}`

function or a list of`{ggplot2}`

functions.- title
The text for the plot title.

- subtitle
The text for the plot subtitle. Will work only if

`results.subtitle = FALSE`

.- caption
The text for the plot caption. This argument is relevant only if

`bf.message = FALSE`

.- ...
Currently ignored.
