Bar Plot Alternatives

Alboukadel Kassambara shows off a couple alternatives to bar charts:

Cleveland’s dot plot

Color y text by groups. Use y.text.col = TRUE.

ggdotchart(dfm, x = "name", y = "mpg", color = "cyl", # Color by groups palette = c("#00AFBB", "#E7B800", "#FC4E07"), # Custom color palette sorting = "descending", # Sort value in descending order rotate = TRUE, # Rotate vertically dot.size = 2, # Large dot size y.text.col = TRUE, # Color y text by groups ggtheme = theme_pubr() # ggplot2 theme )+ theme_cleveland() # Add dashed grids

I like the lollipop chart example.
