# GGPLOT2 bar chart

hi, i have this problem where i need to plot a bar chart for a certain number of variable, but i need 3 grouping bars represent 3 different information for each variable for comparing all of them in one chart.
i was wondering is it possible to do so i can only have 1 bar, this is what i've got so far and it only show bar graph of the 1st variable being x and the 2nd one, i'm trying to show all the other 3 on for each of the 'company' but dont know how:

library(ggplot2)
library(dplyr)
library(tidyverse)
word_count = c(2451, 2628, 3308, 3416, 4132, 4346, 5633, 5658,
6215, 7243, 7314, 7459, 8600, 15260),
30.18,30.48,31.08,35.83,63.58),

ggplot(information, aes(x = company, y = word_count)) +
geom_bar(stat = "identity", position = 'dodge')

thanks

Hi!

To help us help you, could you please prepare a reproducible example (reprex) illustrating your issue? Please have a look at this guide, to see how to create one:

hi, thank you i have already edit it and add in what i have so far, i'd appreciate your reply and also it'd be great if you can have a look and maybe have some idea on how i can solve this problem thanks a lot

I think this is what you mean but the scale differences among variables makes the plot hard to read

``````library(tidyverse)

word_count = c(2451, 2628, 3308, 3416, 4132, 4346, 5633, 5658,
6215, 7243, 7314, 7459, 8600, 15260),
30.18,30.48,31.08,35.83,63.58),

information %>%
gather(metric, value, -company) %>%
ggplot(aes(x = company, y = value, fill = metric)) +
geom_col() +
theme(axis.text.x = element_text(angle = 45, hjust = 1, vjust = 1))

Maybe consider faceting the plot

``````information %>%
gather(metric, value, -company) %>%
ggplot(aes(x = company, y = value, fill = metric)) +
geom_col() +
facet_wrap("metric", scales = "free_y", ncol = 1) +
theme(axis.text.x = element_text(angle = 45, hjust = 1, vjust = 1))
``````
