Aping the New York Times

Annotated source code to make [this chart] [1] using [R] [2] and [ggplot2] [3]. The source data is included as justices.csv and a [write-up of the process] [4] can be found on my blog.

# An attempt to duplicate a chart published by the New York Times graphics
# department: After selecting the data around 80% of the
# work is done in the first ggplot() call. The other 20% --- that took at least
# 80% of the time --- are the following lines. They make this chart look like
# the original. If there's one thing I'd do better next time, it would be to
# make it resolution-independent (this version only really works at 1050x707).
# More details can be found at
