Arguments
data 
A dataframe (or a tibble) from which variables specified are to
be taken. A matrix or tables will not be accepted. 
x 
The grouping variable from the dataframe data . 
y 
The response (a.k.a. outcome or dependent) variable from the
dataframe data . 
grouping.var 
A single grouping variable (can be entered either as a
bare name x or as a string "x" ). 
outlier.label 
Label to put on the outliers that have been tagged. This
can't be the same as x argument. 
title.prefix 
Character string specifying the prefix text for the fixed
plot title (name of each factor level) (Default: NULL ). If NULL , the
variable name entered for grouping.var will be used. 
output 
Character that describes what is to be returned: can be
"plot" (default) or "subtitle" or "caption" . Setting this to
"subtitle" will return the expression containing statistical results. If
you have set results.subtitle = FALSE , then this will return a NULL .
Setting this to "caption" will return the expression containing details
about Bayes Factor analysis, but valid only when type = "parametric" and
bf.message = TRUE , otherwise this will return a NULL . For functions
ggpiestats and ggbarstats , setting output = "proptest" will return a
dataframe containing results from proportion tests. 
... 
Arguments passed on to ggbetweenstats
plot.type Character describing the type of plot. Currently supported
plots are "box" (for pure boxplots), "violin" (for pure violin plots),
and "boxviolin" (for a combination of box and violin plots; default).
xlab Labels for x and y axis variables. If NULL (default),
variable names for x and y will be used.
ylab Labels for x and y axis variables. If NULL (default),
variable names for x and y will be used.
pairwise.comparisons Logical that decides whether pairwise comparisons
are to be displayed (default: TRUE ). Please note that only
significant comparisons will be shown by default. To change this
behavior, select appropriate option with pairwise.display argument. The
pairwise comparison dataframes are prepared using the
pairwiseComparisons::pairwise_comparisons function. For more details
about pairwise comparisons, see the documentation for that function.
p.adjust.method Adjustment method for pvalues for multiple
comparisons. Possible methods are: "holm" (default), "hochberg" ,
"hommel" , "bonferroni" , "BH" , "BY" , "fdr" , "none" .
pairwise.display Decides which pairwise comparisons to display.
Available options are "significant" (abbreviation accepted: "s" ) or
"nonsignificant" (abbreviation accepted: "ns" ) or
"everything" /"all" . The default is "significant" . You can use this
argument to make sure that your plot is not ubercluttered when you have
multiple groups being compared and scores of pairwise comparisons being
displayed.
bf.prior A number between 0.5 and 2 (default 0.707 ), the prior
width to use in calculating Bayes factors.
bf.message Logical that decides whether to display Bayes Factor in
favor of the null hypothesis. This argument is relevant only for
parametric test (Default: TRUE ).
results.subtitle Decides whether the results of statistical tests are
to be displayed as a subtitle (Default: TRUE ). If set to FALSE , only
the plot will be returned.
subtitle The text for the plot subtitle. Will work only if
results.subtitle = FALSE .
caption The text for the plot caption.
sample.size.label Logical that decides whether sample size information
should be displayed for each level of the grouping variable x (Default:
TRUE ).
notch A logical. If FALSE (default), a standard box plot will be
displayed. If TRUE , a notched box plot will be used. Notches are used to
compare groups; if the notches of two boxes do not overlap, this suggests
that the medians are significantly different. In a notched box plot, the
notches extend 1.58 * IQR / sqrt(n) . This gives a roughly 95%
confidence interval for comparing medians. IQR: InterQuartile Range.
notchwidth For a notched box plot, width of the notch relative to the
body (default 0.5 ).
outlier.color Default aesthetics for outliers (Default: "black" ).
outlier.tagging Decides whether outliers should be tagged (Default:
FALSE ).
outlier.shape Hiding the outliers can be achieved by setting
outlier.shape = NA . Importantly, this does not remove the outliers,
it only hides them, so the range calculated for the y axis will be
the same with outliers shown and outliers hidden.
outlier.point.args A list of additional aesthetic arguments to be
passed to ggplot2::geom_point and ggrepel::geom_label_repel geoms
involved outlier value plotting.
outlier.label.args A list of additional aesthetic arguments to be
passed to ggplot2::geom_point and ggrepel::geom_label_repel geoms
involved outlier value plotting.
outlier.coef Coefficient for outlier detection using Tukey's method.
With Tukey's method, outliers are below (1st Quartile) or above (3rd
Quartile) outlier.coef times the InterQuartile Range (IQR) (Default:
1.5 ).
mean.plotting Logical that decides whether mean is to be highlighted
and its value to be displayed (Default: TRUE ).
mean.ci Logical that decides whether 95% confidence interval for
mean is to be displayed (Default: FALSE ).
point.args A list of additional aesthetic arguments to be passed to
the geom_point displaying the raw data.
violin.args A list of additional aesthetic arguments to be passed to
the geom_violin .
ggplot.component A ggplot component to be added to the plot prepared
by ggstatsplot . This argument is primarily helpful for grouped_ variant
of the current function. Default is NULL . The argument should be entered
as a function.
package 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) .
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) .
mean.point.args A list of additional aesthetic
arguments to be passed to ggplot2::geom_point and
ggrepel::geom_label_repel geoms involved mean value plotting.
mean.label.args A list of additional aesthetic
arguments to be passed to ggplot2::geom_point and
ggrepel::geom_label_repel geoms involved mean value plotting.
ggsignif.args A list of additional aesthetic
arguments to be passed to ggsignif::geom_signif .
ggtheme A function, ggplot2 theme name. Default value is
ggplot2::theme_bw() . Any of the ggplot2 themes, or themes from
extension packages are allowed (e.g., ggthemes::theme_fivethirtyeight() ,
hrbrthemes::theme_ipsum_ps() , etc.).
ggstatsplot.layer Logical that decides whether theme_ggstatsplot
theme elements are to be displayed along with the selected ggtheme
(Default: TRUE ). theme_ggstatsplot is an opinionated theme layer that
override some aspects of the selected ggtheme .
effsize.type Type of effect size needed for parametric tests. The
argument can be "biased" (equivalent to "d" for Cohen's d for
ttest; "eta" for partial etasquared for anova) or
"unbiased" (equivalent to "g" Hedge's g for ttest;
"omega" for partial omegasquared for anova)).
k Number of digits after decimal point (should be an integer)
(Default: k = 2L ).
var.equal a logical variable indicating whether to treat the
variances in the samples as equal. If TRUE , then a simple F
test for the equality of means in a oneway analysis of variance is
performed. If FALSE , an approximate method of Welch (1951)
is used, which generalizes the commonly known 2sample Welch test to
the case of arbitrarily many samples.
conf.level Scalar between 0 and 1. If unspecified, the defaults return
95% lower and upper confidence intervals (0.95 ).
type Type of statistic expected ("parametric" or "nonparametric"
or "robust" or "bayes" ).Corresponding abbreviations are also accepted:
"p" (for parametric), "np" (nonparametric), "r" (robust), or
"bf" resp.
nboot Number of bootstrap samples for computing confidence interval
for the effect size (Default: 100 ).
tr Trim level for the mean when carrying out robust tests. If you
get error stating "Standard error cannot be computed because of Winsorized
variance of 0 (e.g., due to ties). Try to decrease the trimming level.",
try to play around with the value of tr , which is by default set to
0.1 . Lowering the value might help.

plotgrid.args 
A list of additional arguments to cowplot::plot_grid . 
title.text 
String or plotmath expression to be drawn as title for the
combined plot. 
title.args 
A list of additional arguments
provided to title , caption and sub , resp. 
caption.text 
String or plotmath expression to be drawn as the caption
for the combined plot. 
caption.args 
A list of additional arguments
provided to title , caption and sub , resp. 
sub.text 
The label with which the combined plot should be annotated.
Can be a plotmath expression. 
sub.args 
A list of additional arguments
provided to title , caption and sub , resp. 
Details
For parametric tests, Welch's ANOVA/ttest are used as a default (i.e.,
var.equal = FALSE
).
If robust tests are selected, following tests are used is .
For more about how the effect size measures (for nonparametric tests) and
their confidence intervals are computed, see ?rcompanion::wilcoxonR
.
For repeated measures designs, use ggwithinstats
.
