Creating Pareto Charts in R with qcc

Steven Sanderson builds a Pareto chart:

A Pareto chart is a type of bar chart that shows the frequency of different categories in a dataset, ordered by frequency from highest to lowest. It is often used to identify the most common problems or causes of a problem, so that resources can be focused on addressing them.

To create a Pareto chart in R, we can use the qcc package. The qcc package provides a number of functions for quality control, including the pareto.chart() function for creating Pareto charts.
