R Question

Using this

`data.frame`

`mydf <- read.table(text = c("`

variables VIP coefficient

diesel 0.705321 0.19968224

twodoors 1.2947119 0.3387236

sportsstyle 0.8406462 -0.25861398

wheelbase 1.3775179 -0.42541873

length 0.8660376 0.09322408

width 0.8202489 0.27762277

height 1.0140934 -0.12334574

curbweight 0.996365 -0.29504266

enginesize 0.8601269 -0.25321317

horsepower 0.7093094 0.16587358

horse_per_weight 1.2389938 0.43380122"), header = T)

and the answer of similar question

I tried to order the bars from highest to lowest

`library(ggplot2)`

library(egg)

mydf <- transform(mydf, variables = reorder(variables, VIP, decreasing = T))

p1 <-

ggplot(mydf, aes(x = variables, y = VIP, group =1))+

geom_bar(stat="identity") +

geom_hline(yintercept = 1, size = 2, linetype = 3) +

theme(axis.title.x =element_blank())

p2 <-

ggplot(mydf, aes(x = variables, y = coefficient, group =1))+

geom_point()+

geom_line()+

geom_hline(yintercept = 0, size = 2, linetype = 3)

grid.draw(egg::ggarrange(p1,p2 , ncol=1))

I got this figure

Although, I sorted the

`variables and VIP`

Any idea what went wrong and made the bars sorted from lowest to highest?

Answer Source

The problem is a wrong use of `reorder`

.

```
library(ggplot2)
library(egg)
mydf <- transform(mydf, variables = reorder(variables, -VIP))
p1 <-
ggplot(mydf, aes(x = variables, y = VIP))+
geom_bar(stat="identity") +
geom_hline(yintercept = 1, size = 2, linetype = 3) +
theme(axis.title.x =element_blank())
p2 <-
ggplot(mydf, aes(x = variables, y = coefficient, group = 1))+
geom_point()+
geom_line()+
geom_hline(yintercept = 0, size = 2, linetype = 3)
grid.draw(egg::ggarrange(p1,p2 , ncol=1))
```
