DuBois Table Studies

Select one of DuBois’ original plates below to see the data tabulated using gt. Each of the studies below has four components:

  • A gt table created using DuBois’ data,

  • A larger version of DuBois’ original plate,

  • The code used to reproducibly create the gt table, and

  • Some commentary around how the graph on the plate was translated into a tabular medium.

Many of the tabulated versions of the data rely on the ggplot2 package to create simple in-line graphical depictions of the data. Furthermore, gtExtras::gt_theme_538() pulls a lot of weight when it comes to setting the table theme as it reflects DuBois’ sans-serif, all-caps printed typography.
