Simon Jackson shows how to plot multiple variables against one another using R:

This post is an extension of a previous one that appears here:

In that prior post, I explained a method for plotting the univariate distributions of many numeric variables in a data frame. This post does something very similar, but with a few tweaks that produce a very useful result. So, in general, I’ll skip over a few minor parts that appear in the previous post (e.g., how to use purrr::keep() if you want only variables of a particular type).

Read on for code, including a good bit of tidyr.
