I am a total beginner and i need your help. I should create a bar plot with an adapted width. Ideally also circular. How can I change the width of ggplot? Thank you for your help.
Welcome to the forum. Use 'width' in
geom_bar to tweak the bar width and for circular behavior, just add
Here are some simple examples, which you can adapt to your data.
library(ggplot2) library(dplyr) #modified width bar Chart slices <- c(10, 12, 4, 16, 8) lbls <- c("US", "UK", "Australia", "Germany", "France") DF <- data.frame(lbls = lbls, slices = slices) p <- ggplot(DF, aes(x = lbls, y = slices, fill = lbls)) #compare column width p+ geom_col(width = 0.5) p + geom_col(width = 1) #circular #for geom_col x = 1 because geom_col defaults to "identity" pp <-ggplot(DF, aes(x = 1, y = slices, fill = lbls)) pp + geom_col(width = 1) + coord_polar(theta = "x" ) pp + geom_col(width = 1) + coord_polar(theta = "y" )
Hope this helps.
Many thanks for the quick response. I am now a proud creator of a circular barplot
