I've recently started to work with ggplot2 and R in general. I'm working on a plot I would like to use for presentation purposes, but I have some difficulty cleaning it properly.
Specifically, I would like the grey shaded rectangle to go all the way from top to bottom. I need to specify -ymin- and -ymax-, but it does not alter the rectangle the way I want. Hopefully, someone here can help me out.
Don't mind the time variable, it's originally Stata-formatted and I'm currently working on importing Stata-formatted date variables to R. (I would appreciate sources on this as well.)
GP_treatment <- ggplot(GP_intervention_data_viz, aes(x = monthly_date, y = suiciderate, col = factor(intervention))) + geom_smooth(se = FALSE) + annotate("rect", xmin = 672, xmax = 695, ymin = 0.5, ymax = 1, alpha = .5) val = c("#E41A1C", "#377EB8") lab = c("Control", "Treatment") GP_treatment + scale_x_continuous("Month") + scale_y_continuous("Monthly suicide rate per 100 000") + scale_color_manual("Treatment status", values = val, labels = lab)
And here is the plot. As you can see, some additional space above 1.5 and below 0.5 is automatically added, and I would like to remove this:
