Recreating a NEJM forest plot/table hybrid
Authors: Randy Boyes
Affiliations: Queen's University
Abstract: A demonstration of the use of patchwork for creating hybrids of figures and tables. The table shown is a replication of a forest plot overlaid on a table originally published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Full Description: I have created an R package to facilitate the creation of tables like this called forestable. The package is available here: https://github.com/rdboyes/forestable
The original figure that this code attempts to replicate (on the right) comes from the New England Journal of Medicine . The figure made in R is on the left.
