Summary

Instruction

That took care of plotting information in ascending order. What if we wanted to plot it in reverse – in descending order?

fct_rev(survey$age)

We'd need another function, fct_rev(), which we'd apply to the result from fct_infreq(). Here's what we'd code:

ggplot(survey, aes(fct_rev(fct_infreq(age)))) + 
    geom_bar() + coord_flip()

Exercise

Do the reverse of the last exercise – plot the marital status column in descending order. Remember to use ggplot(), geom_bar(), coord_flip(), and fct_infreq().

Stuck? Here's a hint!

Type:

ggplot(survey, aes(fct_rev(fct_infreq(mrt_status)))) + 
  geom_bar() + coord_flip()
