Hi,

I'm using the decompose function and I want to show the months in the xlabel of the plot. For example: January, February, March and so on. How can I do that?

Any help? It would be really great .

I tried to fo the same and didn't arrive at my desire.

perhaps share some plotting code to show what you do with the decompose result ?

This does not look like base plotting, it looks like some ggplot2 ... right ?

The feasts package produces a plot that might be more what you want.

```
library(feasts)
library(ggplot2)
USAccDeaths %>%
as_tsibble() %>%
model(STL(value)) %>%
components() %>%
autoplot() + labs(x="Month")
```

Yes, you're right. Here is the code.

if(!require("astsa")) install.packages("astsa")

require(astsa)

library(readxl)

library(ggplot2)

rotac<-x[c(1:35),c(1:2)]

rot <-ts(rotac[[2]], start = c(2018,1), end = c(2020,11), frequency = 12)

rot

plot.ts(rot, ylab = "Ret", xlab = "Mes", col="blue")

boxplot(rot)

class(rot)

fit<-decompose(rot, type = "mult")

autoplot(fit)

```
Error: object 'x' not found
```

yet aside from that, i would expect you would get the error :

```
Error: Objects of type decomposed.ts not supported by autoplot.
```

but you dont ?

Sorry.

The "x" is the variable where I read the dataset from excel.

I suppose you omitted required libs ggfortify and zoo, if autoplot is desired to plot the ts in a ggplot2 compatible way.

try

```
if(!require("astsa")) install.packages("astsa")
require(astsa)
library(ggplot2)
rot <-ts(astsa::birth, start = c(1948,1), end = c(1949,12), frequency = 12)
rot
plot.ts(rot, ylab = "Ret", xlab = "Mes", col="blue")
fit<-decompose(rot, type = "mult")
if(!require("ggfortify")) install.packages("ggfortify")
require(ggfortify)
if(!require("zoo")) install.packages("zoo")
require(zoo)
autoplot(fit)
#example of changing the date breaks on the axis
autoplot(fit) + scale_x_date(date_breaks = "3 months")
```

Thank you so much! Do you know how to increase the size of the xlabel and ylabel using autoplot?

```
+ theme(strip.text.x=element_text(size=24),
axis.text=element_text(size=12))
```

THANK YOU!!! You saved me!!! Thank you so much!!
