Problem with Graphing scale and unknown aesthetics

Hi

I got warning messages after typing code:

Warning: Ignoring unknown aesthetics: colours
stat_bin() using bins = 30. Pick better value with binwidth.

My R Code is
w<-read.csv(file="Satisfaction.csv",head=TRUE,sep=",")
p<-ggplot(data=w,aes(x=LE))
p+geom_freqpoly(aes(colors=Country))
print(p + geom_freqpoly(aes(colors=Country))+ggtitle("Jielan Liu Question 10")+theme(plot.title=element_text(hjust=0.5)))

The file="Satisfaction.csv" contains columns ID, Country, Continent, LE, WellBeing, Ecological Footprint, HPI. So I want to make the line has different colours based on Country. However, it doesn't read through. Second, I think I need to change the scale of Y axis by using stat_bin("bins = 30").

Please help!

There is no aesthetic named colors, try using color.

p+geom_freqpoly(aes(color = Country))

The warning about stat_bin() can be safely ignored but you can set the bin width using the binwidth parameter. If you want the bin width to be 10, use

p+geom_freqpoly(aes(color=Country), binwidth = 10)

Hi

Thanks for help. There is no graph come out after typing code:
w<-read.csv(file="Satisfaction.csv",head=TRUE,sep=",")
p<-ggplot(data=w,aes(x=LE))
p+geom_freqpoly(aes(color=Country), binwidth = 10)
print(p + geom_freqpoly(aes(color=Country))+ggtitle("Jielan Liu Question 10")+theme(plot.title=element_text(hjust=0.5)))

But from the console tab, the code seems to be read through. Second, the "colors= " or "colours= " is from Rstudio, which means once I typed in "color", the "colors/colours =" pop out. What I did just follow the system code.

Thanks

Can you please share a small part of the data set in a copy-paste friendly format?

In case you don't know how to do it, there are many options, which include:

  1. If you have stored the data set in some R object, dput function is very handy.

  2. In case the data set is in a spreadsheet, check out the datapasta package. Take a look at this link.

Hi,

I made a copy of the dataset below from excel:

I made a small data set from what you posted and I got the following plots. As written, you will get one line per Coutry. Is that what you want?

library(ggplot2)
w<-read.csv(file="/home/fjcc/R/Play/Dummy.csv",head=TRUE,sep=",")
p<-ggplot(data=w,aes(x=LE))
p+geom_freqpoly(aes(color=Country), binwidth = 10)

print(p + geom_freqpoly(aes(color=Country))+ggtitle("Jielan Liu Question 10")+
        theme(plot.title=element_text(hjust=0.5)))
#> `stat_bin()` using `bins = 30`. Pick better value with `binwidth`.

Hi,
I think I didnt express well. Please see the screenshot or the pdf file to get the sample pictures

Thank you so much.
