Using R’s “ggplot” package for barplots of three different datasets

This tutorial will discuss how bar plots can be generated using R’s ggplot package using 3 examples. Another tutorial on data visualization using python’s matplotlib package can be found here: Tutorial on Data Visualization: Weather Data.

This code plots the global market share for electric vehicles (EV) for selected countries using the global_EV_2016.csv dataset: The global EV data obtained from this report: https://www.iea.org/publications/freepublications/publication/GlobalEVOutlook2017.pdf.

The code for this example can be downloaded from this repository: https://github.com/bot13956/2016_market_share_electric_cars_using_R.

Import Necessary Libraries

library(readr)library(tidyverse)

Data Importation and Preparation

data<-read_csv("global_EV_2016.csv",col_names = FALSE)head(data)data<-data[-c(1,2),]names(data)<-c("country","sales_bev","stock_bev","sales_phev","stock_phev","shares")head(data)

Generate Barplot for Data Visualization

data%>%drop_na(shares)%>%mutate(shares=parse_number(shares))%>% filter(shares>=0.91)%>% ggplot(aes(reorder(country, shares),shares))+ geom_col(fill="blue")+ coord_flip()+ theme(axis.title.x=element_blank())+ theme(axis.title.y=element_blank())+ ggtitle("Market share of electric vehicles in selected countries (%)")
