Creating a Barplot for One Variable

To create a barplot for one variable, we must first isolate the column we wish to plot. In our case, column X.deaths. was chosen. The values in this row include: 785 863 883 793 971 970 751 743 1000 834.

Now, we will sum these values across the rows, to give us an idea of how far up on the y-axis we will need to go:

785 + 863 + 883 + 793 + 971 + 970 + 751 + 743 + 1000 + 834 + 775 + 680 + 773 + 916 + 806 + 724 + 743 + 693 + 941 + 926 + 861 = 17431.

So we extend our y-axis to 17431 as seen in the barplot below. You can make the barplot as wide as you like. For the sum, we will draw a horizontal line across the barplot at 17431.

You can number the barplot by 5s, 10s, or whatever makes sense. We can also label the x-axis X.deaths.

You can see the result of our efforts below.
